Breakfast in the Classroom at Upson
This is the first year of breakfast in the classroom. K-2 grades go to the cafeteria and the 3-4 eat right in the room. We are a high poverty district, so a lot of our students don't eat before coming to school. The breakfast is free due to a grant, so all students can take advantage of the program.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

When the students have the opportunity to eat breakfast in the morning, it makes it easier for them to focus and participate in the classroom activities. It helps reinforce to the students that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
