A GOOD DAY STARTS WITH A GOOD BREAKFAST!

Students at our school are able to start their day with a nutritious breakfast.


According to Breakfast Clubs of Canada, "When children get a balanced meal in a positive, stimulating environment, there are marked improvements in behavior and concentration, academic performance, social skills, self-confidence, overall interest in subjects taught, and incidents of bullying."


Our program relies heavily on the generosity of community donors.


MONETARY DONATIONS ARE ACCEPTED AT THE SCHOOL OFFICE.
