Drinking My Milk Until There is No More
This Fall, our school decided to switch from Breakfast in the Classroom to Grab and Go Breakfast. Upon release from our three meeting sites, Grab and Go stations would be set up at strategic locations. We needed the locations to be convenient for an easy pick up as the students made their way to their classrooms. We worked with our Administrative team, our Nutrition Services team, our PTA members and students from each grade level to ensure the selected locations best served the needs of our students. Members of our FUTP 60 team introduced our Grab and Go Breakfast plan at our 6th Grade Camp.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

How did you accomplish your goals?

We met with groups of our incoming 6th Graders. Our purpose was to provide an opportunity to see our Grab & Go Breakfast. They were excited to be our ‘Practice Squad’. During our session we presented tips on why breakfast is an important start to their day?, the Grab and Go Breakfast menu, and samples of some of our breakfast items. At the conclusion of each session, expectations were given and demonstrated by teams led by our Student Summit Ambassadors.

How did you accomplish your goals?

During our Meet the Teacher presentations for our groups of 7th and 8th graders, we presented a slide show made up of photos from our 6th grade experience. This part of the presentation was well received by our returning students and our staff. We made fliers, with simple instructions, to hand out to all students as they entered our building on the first day of school.
