Did you know that students who eat breakfast perform better academically especially on math, vocabulary, and standardized tests.  Student who eat breakfast also have better attendance and fewer behavior problems.  
 
In an effort to increase breakfast participation for high school students we will be implementing the Breakfast in a Bag program starting Monday August 31st. Students will have a chance to sign up for a bag during first hour lunch count.  Students will pick up the bags between first and second hour in the foyer by the h.s. office and be allowed to eat the breakfast in 2nd hour.
 
Students on free/reduced meals who don't eat a regular breakfast may order breakfast in a bag at free/reduced rate.  Students who have already eaten a free/reduced breakfast will be charged full price. For more information, contact Dexter Carpenter, Assistant Principal, at 620-892-5215 x 2.

Thanks!

It was nice to get so many BoxTops and labels to count yesterday.  If you have some sitting at home, please send them to school with your child.  I am also collecting Coke/Dasani water points at this time, also.
