Celebrate National School Breakfast Week by taking the School Breakfast Challenge!“Take the School Breakfast Challenge” Encourages Cumberland County School Families to Choose Breakfast at School

Busy weekday mornings make it a challenge for families to find time for a healthy breakfast. However, US Department of Agriculture data show that more students are starting their day with a nutritious breakfast in their school cafeterias.  To encourage more families to take advantage of the healthy choices available with school breakfast, Cumberland County Schools will recognize National School Breakfast Week during March 6-10, 2017.

The National School Breakfast Week (NSBW) campaign theme, “School Breakfast Challenge”, reminds the entire school community that school breakfast provides a healthy, energizing start to the day for students. Students will be encouraged to “Take the Challenge” from March 6-10 by eating breakfast in the cafeteria every morning during the celebrated week.  On Friday, the students who ate at least one breakfast during the week can complete a raffle ticket. This will make them eligible to win some very nice prizes based on grade level. The available prizes are as follows:

*Grades Kindergarten – 2nd grade – two, 20-inch Bicycles with Helmets

*Grades 3rd – 5th – two, Razor El Dorado Scooters with Helmets

*Middle School – one, Beats Headphones

*High School – one, Beats Headphones

Parents and students can follow the fun on Facebook.com/TrayTalk.
