We want to encourage our students to eat a healthy breakfast to ensure a good start on their day and their learning experience.  Statistics show children who eat breakfast are more alert and concentrate better during the morning hours and tire less easily.  School nutrition has a motto, “You cannot teach a hungry child”, and we are here to solve that problem with UNIVERSAL BREAKFAST (FREE).  No student is charged for breakfast.
