Valley Springs Second Chance Breakfast

Paula Gordon,   Valley Springs Elementary School
Students at Valley Springs Elementary are offered a Second Chance breakfast if they arrive too late to eat the hot breakfast or if they chose to stay out for recess before school. They are given twenty minutes to eat the breakfast in their classroom. Several students take advantage of this opportunity to have breakfast in the classroom.

How did you accomplish your goals?

The Brandon Valley School District piloted Second Chance Breakfast at one of our elementary schools three years ago. The pilot program was successful, so we implemented it into all elementary schools.

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

One of the challenges we face was the time and the mess of young children eating in the classroom. The Wellness Committee surveyed teachers and lunch staff to find opportunities to streamline the program.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students are ready to learn and less likely to cause disruptions during the early part of the day.
