Books and Breakfast | A Beloved Tradition at South 鶹 School


For 16 years, South 鶹 School has proudly hosted its annual Books and Breakfast event. This heartwarming tradition brings together 鶹, families, and the local community to celebrate literacy, community, and good food. This year, the event saw over 500 attendees who enjoyed a delightful breakfast, received free books, and participated in various activities and events. It was a day filled with joy, learning, and community spirit, embodying what makes South 鶹 School special.

The breakfast, a highlight of the event, was cooked and served by 鶹 under the guidance of the Home and Careers Department. Leading this culinary effort is the dynamic mother-daughter team of Nancy and Kara Tancredi. For many, their delicious breakfast spread has become synonymous with the Books and Breakfast experience. Nancy, a beloved figure at South 鶹 School, is retiring this year, marking the end of an era. Her retirement brings mixed emotions as the school community celebrates her incredible career while preparing to bid farewell to a cherished educator and mentor.

Nancy Tancredi has been a cornerstone of South 鶹 School for over 30 years. Her dedication to her 鶹 and her passion for teaching has left an indelible mark on thousands of young lives. Her involvement in the Books and Breakfast event is just one of the many ways she has fostered a sense of community, caring, and love at South 鶹 School. As Nancy steps into retirement, she leaves a legacy that will continue to inspire 鶹 and staff.

The Books and Breakfast event is more than just a meal; it's a community celebration. Attendees receive free books, encouraging a love for reading and learning among 鶹. Various activities and events are organized throughout the day, ensuring there's something for everyone to enjoy. Local community organizations also participate, providing valuable information and resources to families. This event promotes literacy and strengthens the bonds within the school and the broader community.

Nancy's daughter, Kara, who has been a co-leader of the event, will carry forward the tradition, ensuring that the spirit of Books and Breakfast continues to thrive. Kara's involvement and commitment to the event reflect the strong family values and dedication that have been a hallmark of the Tancredi legacy at South 鶹 School.

This year's event was particularly special, as it was not only a celebration of Books and Breakfast but also a tribute to Nancy Tancredi's remarkable career. Tributes and heartfelt messages from 鶹 and colleagues highlighted her profound impact on the community. Her retirement is a poignant reminder of the enduring influence a dedicated educator can have on countless lives.

As the event concluded, there was a palpable sense of gratitude and appreciation for Nancy's contributions. She leaves a legacy of community, caring, and an unwavering love for teaching. Her influence will continue to be felt through the traditions she helped establish and the countless 鶹 she has inspired.

Books and Breakfast at South 鶹 School is more than an event; it's a testament to the power of community and the lasting impact of dedicated educators like Nancy Tancredi. As we look forward to future events, we carry with us the spirit of generosity, learning, and togetherness that Nancy has beautifully embodied throughout her career.

We remain thankful for the time, monetary, and service donations received from local organizations and community members that make this event an annual success. A special thank you to: Kiwanis Club of 鶹, NY GEARUP, Tj's CATV, Brothers BBQ, and SMS PTG.
