The students at Hillside Middle School had a mission to get more students involved in the breakfast program.  A School Breakfast Challenge was created. Students were encouraged to go to breakfast at school as a healthy way to start their day. Students were also encouraged to bring breakfast from home if they preferred.The kids that participated in breakfast were given tickets that allowed them to enter and win prizes each day. Three to five prizes were given out daily. These prizes ranged from new sporting equipment like basketballs and footballs to gift cards where they could have breakfast without paying even after the breakfast initiative was done.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students and adults worked together to build a welcoming atmosphere during breakfast.
