Breakfast After the Bell
Daily from 7:53-8:10
Breakfast After the Bell allows breakfast to be served at no charge to all children after the school day has begun in the classroom. It allows schools to increase the percentage of children eating – often reaching 90-100%, particularly in elementary schools.
Breakfast is delivered to the classrooms each morning. While children eat, teachers can take attendance, collect homework, read aloud, or begin the lesson. When they are finished, students clean up their own desks and throw their garbage in a trash bag that is picked up the custodian.
