GET YOUR REB ON!
When students need to take achievement tests, schools strongly urge them to eat breakfast first on testing days. Why? Because we know that when students eat balanced meal, they perform better academically and are better able to concentrate. Yet on “normal” days, many students fail to eat breakfast: they’re too busy, they’re too tired, they don’t know what to eat. This is why School Breakfast is offered. Let’s help students to perform better every day, not just on testing days, by making sure they eat a healthy breakfast at home or at school.
School Breakfast Information:
Serving Time: 7:45 a.m. Price: $2.00 paid, $.30 reduced*, free* (*if qualified) No advance registration necessary! All students are welcome every day!
