Breakfast in the Morning

Parents, we need your help! As you are aware, when the bell rings at 7:30, students are welcome to go into the library to read quietly (Dr. Bray has a 20 student limit) , go to their grade level line in the gym or go to the cafe to eat breakfast. If you have made arrangements to have your child eat breakfast in our cafe, please remind him/her to go directly to the cafe each morning. Many students are going to the library or in the gym and we don't want anyone to miss their breakfast if they haven't eaten yet. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we want to be sure everyone starts their day with healthy and full tummy!


Thank you for your assistance!
