Power Your Body and Brain with Breafast

healthy breakfast

The word “breakfast” means, “breaking your fast” after a long night without food. It’s an especially important meal for growing children. Breakfast fills your child’s empty tank to help get his or her body going for the day. Breakfast also helps to feed children’s brains so they can listen in class, get schoolwork done and maybe even do better on tests. When kids eat breakfast regularly, it can also help them get the vitamins and minerals they need to grow up strong and healthy.

For a good breakfast, try to include something from two or more of the USDA’s MyPyramid food groups. For example, the breakfasts below include foods from three food groups: Toast (Grains) with peanut butter (Proteins) and a glass of orange juice (Fruits)  OR Cereal (Grains) with milk (Milk) and sliced banana (Fruits) on top

Remember, you are a role model for your child. So eat breakfast together as often as possible during the week.

School Safety Procedure

raptor

All three schools have installed the Raptor Visitor Management System. Raptor is one piece of our Comprehensive School Safety Plan.

Visitors wishing to go beyond the front office will be required to show a picture ID to office personnel. The picture ID will then be quickly scanned and checked against the national sex offender registry in order to keep our children safe. Once approved, a sticker label will be printed showing the visitor name, picture, destination and time. Visitors will wear the sticker in a place visible to all students and staff. Visitors will be required to check out at the front office upon departure.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact front office personnel. For more information on Raptor Technologies, please visit their website at www.raptortech.com.
