School Lunch Menu Calendars
Is morning at your house one hurried hassle after another? If one important element of a busy morning was made convenient and easy for you would you take advantage of it? If it helped your child's grades would it be worthwhile?
Students who start their day with proper nourishment are better positioned to do well at school. I would like to take a moment to discuss the benefits of breakfast, provide you with an update on our school breakfast program.
Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day for students, and all of us. Not only does it provides us with energy to start a new day, but breakfast is also linked to many health benefits and improved behaviors such as:
- Higher academic scores-studies have shown eating breakfast at school results in higher test scores due to improved concentration and better problem-solving skills.
- Classroom conduct-hungry children are more likely to have discipline problems.
- Reduce tardiness-students who participate in the school breakfast program are less likely to be late or absent from school.
Students will thank you. Whether through smiling faces or increased focus in class, students' minds and bodies will be grateful. The goal of school breakfast is to ensure that every child gets the boost they need for physical and academic well-being.
South Lake Schools will be participating in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) as part of the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs for the School Year 2022-2023.
The GREAT NEWS is that ALL students enrolled at our school can receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at NO CHARGE to your household each day.
