Breakfast at Oak Ridge

Buscemi, Phillip and Maslak

 Oak Ridge Staff

Oak Ridge School Principal Kevin Buscemi, Technology Information Coordinator Christine Phillip and Team Leaders Jola Maslak and Dave Creagan and Assistant Principal Jenn Stefan lent their culinary skills recently to make breakfast for the staff.

They made hundreds of pancakes and sausages prior to teachers going to their classes and starting asynchronous learning (remote learning) that day.

The event was one of a handful the school puts on each year as a way for staff to come together. Buscemi and Assistant Principal Jenn Stefan and a few others covered the cost of the pancakes and sausages.

Events like pre-Thanksgiving are held between conferences when teachers have free time and are potluck-style where everyone brings something to share.

These events are huge hits and the staff really embrace them.

Says Principal Buscemi: "I'm Italian. Food brings people together."
