- Perform better with increased attention span and memory.
- Miss fewer days of school and are late less often.
- Have improved behavior and attitude.
- Get the nutrients they need to grow and develop.
To encourage students to eat breakfast and start the day right, SHAPE-A-Roo, Food & Nutrition Services’ mascot, is having breakfast at your school on Thursday, February 27th. Please encourage students to come have breakfast at school that day. Breakfast is served from 7:30-7:55 and costs $1.50. Students who qualify for free/reduced lunch can also receive breakfast at no cost.
