Start your engines with school breakfast

National School Breakfast Week is celebrated each year the first week of March. This annual celebration reminds parents, students and school personnel that fueling up at breakfast also means winning in the classroom. 

During the week of March 4-8, Rousseau Elementary School peaked student interest and even doubled student breakfast participation with week-long activities including taste-testing new products, a “build your own parfait” day, “bring a friend to breakfast day” and special visitors from the police and fire departments.

Student quotes on Yogurt Parfait Day:

  • “I give it two thumbs up!” - Owen
  • “It’s BERRY good!” - Phoenix
  • “It’s delicious!” - Quinn
  • “I eat breakfast every day because it’s so yummy!” - Maya

Arnold and Everett elementary schools decked out their cafeterias with racing gear and donned race shirts to match the theme. The efficiency of the kitchen “pit-crew” delivers breakfast at record speeds. Everett feeds more than 300 students in 20 minutes.

Breakfast helps all students “Start Their Engines” for a successful school day.
