NATIONAL SCHOOL BREAKFAST WEEK
Take Time For Breakfast
Eating a good breakfast is a very important start to our day. We are going to have prizes for the students who eat breakfast each day. This year we are going to have a special prize to any student who brings a guest to eat breakfast with them. Please let your guest know that we begin serving breakfast at 7:00 and the cost for a guest is only 1.50. We also have a special day for our teachers and staff. Tuesday, March 4 is our teacher and staff appreciation day and everyone eating breakfast that day will receive a gift.
Let's all remember to take time for breakfast and give our day a great start!

Students that are signing in late due to a doctor/dentist appointment must have an excuse from the doctor/dentist to be considered an excused tardy.
