Starting Our Day off Right
Our students begin their days with a hearty, healthy breakfast meal that is prepared each day by our wonderful cafeteria staff. They work hard to make sure students enjoy the healthy choices they make and eat a minimum of three choices to begin their days. This kick-start allows our students to get the fuel they need to focus in the classroom and perform well when activities come in to play. Their mind set is to begin the day off right and stay on track all day.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We have seen students with the proper energy to start off their day. They are alert and are able to focus on tasks at hand.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students assist teachers in making sure every student picks the proper amount of breakfast choices. They self manage themselves to make good healthy decisions.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Properly educating students on the importance of beginning a good day with a balanced breakfast. Also, getting students to try things for the first time was a small hill we faced. Students did an amazing job overcoming all the challenges.
