The Non-Fiction Class taught by Rachel Freeman-Baldwin (English) holds an annual bake sale to help raise money to provide gifts for underprivileged kids during the holiday season. Before the big day, students might assume that it is just a standard bake sale, like all the others that we see throughout the year; however, a lot more work and preparation goes into making this project a reality. The Non-Fic class began working in early October.

“People tend to think we whip it up in two days or a week, but [the bake sale] takes almost two months to prepare,” Aubree Tucker (12) said.

With the exception of a few, the children who are a part of the event all come from Hillary Krumm’s daycare. The students get to meet these kids prior to the event to play and bond with them.

Each student has a specific role they need to fill in those two months. Some focus on social media, others on handling funds. Even with all these roles, each student on the day of the bake sale gets a chance to take care of a kid.

“I would say the best part would be getting to hang out with the kids all day and then raising money in order to pay for gifts for kids that aren’t able to afford them,” Xavier Bodary (12) said.

Proceeds will go to Gaylord Mankowski’s annual holiday party, which provides gifts to families in need.

“One of the first steps to preparing the bake sale would be making sure that everything is ready with the kids,” Aubree Tucker said.

To help publicize the event to the school, the Non-Fiction class prepared a Flex video that would showcase this year’s theme: Candyland. Candyland is a popular board game for young children. The video features Xavier Bodary (12) as King Candy and Joel John (12) as Lord Licorice, both characters from the board game. Students generally feel excited about the event.

“I am so hype for the Non-Fiction bake sale even though I’m vegan and can’t eat anything. The kids are alright though.“ Naomi Armstrong (12) said.
