School Breakfast Week
This next week, March 5th – 9th is School Breakfast Week. This is a nationally recognized week honoring the school breakfast program. The Child Nutrition Services (CNS) department is challenging students to eat breakfast in the cafeteria all week. Students who eat breakfast will be provided with a School Breakfast Week punch card. Each day, when the students eat breakfast in the cafeteria they will receive a punch on their card. At the end of the week, if they have filled their punch card, they will have earned a free snack from the cafeteria.

You may be asking yourself…What exactly is Leadership Day? It is a time to hear about our Leader in Me journey and to see our young leaders in action. During your visit, you will hear student presenters and be led on tours across the campus. **Note: This day is for seeing leadership across the campus. The tours are pre-set, so we cannot guarantee you will see your own child’s classroom. We will provide another time for you to observe leadership in your child’s classroom. Thank you! Please help us prepare by submitting your RSVP below by March 19th. Cypress Leadership Day
