The collaboration of the nutrition, health, and physical education programs has enhanced curriculum and additional student learning about healthy nutrition and lifestyle choices by having the new "Grab 'N Go" breakfast program this year. Additionally, students in health classes made posters to support the new breakfast initiative, as well as health and PE classroom lessons and activities being incorporated with teaching the importance of eating a daily breakfast and how it fuels the body throughout the day. Thus, our breakfast sales have increased to approximately 80-90 students partaking in the new Grab 'N Go program, and students are much more alert, engaged, and nourished, especially in their first period classes.
