Promoting School Meals with Weekly Fliers

This is the first of the weekly fliers we are sending home with students:

Quick Facts About Breakfast at Our School

  1. Breakfast is FREE for every student. Adults pay just $2.50 (less than a latte!).
  2. Breakfast is served in the cafeteria from 7:45 – 8:15. On assembly days, breakfast is served in the classroom.
  3. Research confirms that breakfast eaters…
    • have higher test scores, work faster, make fewer errors and are more creative
    • are less likely to be sent to the principal or visit the school nurse
    • are more cooperative and get along with classmates
    • are healthier and have improved attendance
    • are more able to concentrate on learning (Action for Healthy Kids)

Make a date to have breakfast at Our School with your family, other parents and friends!

If you have questions about school meals, please contact our cafeteria manager!
