National School Breakfast Week March 6th-10th:
By celebrating National School Breakfast Week (NSBW) every year, we’re encouraging all schools to recognize the importance of a healthy start to the day for fueling a child’s academic success. Children who eat breakfast are more likely to reach higher levels of achievement in reading and math, score higher on standardized tests, have better concentration and memory, be more alert, and maintain a healthy weight! To celebrate NSBW we have a few ideas that will differ depending on the age level.
Students who buy a school breakfast may win a fun prize, snack, or coffee depending on what age level they are in. Elementary will be offered through a "Lucky Breakfast Tray", and Middle/High Schools will be given a raffle ticket to be entered. Below are attachments for fun themed coloring sheets and activity paged featuring school breakfast!
