Celebrate National School Breakfast Week
Cherry Creek Schools, under the leadership of the district’s Food and Nutrition Services Department, is celebrating National School Breakfast Week, March 5-9, 2012. The week is a time to communicate the importance of eating a healthy breakfast and to encourage families to take advantage of the school breakfast program available daily in each of our schools.

Why celebrate breakfast? Because it’s essential that all of our students eat a healthy breakfast to perform at their best! This year’s theme, Go for Gold, ties to the coming 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London and encourages students to not only eat a balanced breakfast but also to participate in some type of physical activity each day.

Here are just a few of the advantages of eating breakfast. Students who consistently eat breakfast:
    Score higher on tests
    Are better able to concentrate in class
    Have fewer discipline issues in school
    Are better able to maintain a healthy weight

School Breakfast FAQ’s

Is breakfast available at all schools?
Yes, all schools that provide lunch service also serve breakfast. Check with your student’s school for breakfast serving times.

What is the cost of breakfast?
Breakfast costs $1.30 at elementary schools and $1.40 at middle and high schools. Students who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch can also receive breakfast at no cost.

We encourage students to stop in for breakfast to see what it’s all about!
