It's National School Breakfast Week!

Start your engines… and come have a healthy breakfast with us! Teachers and parents are welcome to come as well!

Did you know??? Students who eat school breakfast are more likely to:

*Reach higher levels of achievement in reading and math

*Score higher on standardized tests

The school breakfast program serves over 14 MILLION children every school day!

  • 5 NASCAR hats that will be drawn for on Friday, March 8th for anyone who ate breakfast all week!
  • We will be having a race between grade levels to see who has the highest breakfast participation for the entire week. Watch for the race track that will be on the wall when you come in to the café to see who is leading! The grade level that wins will receive cookies & rice krispy treats Friday March 8th at lunch.

We successfully smashed our goal of raising $15,000 through the Step it Up campaign! As of today, we have raised $21,686! And the cool thing is that we are still collecting online donations through March 13! All checks and cash were to be turned in on Friday.

Our staff is super excited to see the school improvements as a result of this awesome fundraiser! Our initiatives this year include a shade structure for our playground, leveled text for class libraries, and various school beautification projects. You will hear more about these as we begin making plans!

I cannot thank you all enough for the support you provide to our school community! Great things ahead for North Pointe Elementary!
