Celebrating National School Breakfast Week

Picture of students and breakfast traysSchool cafeterias throughout Jordan School District and the nation are celebrating National School Breakfast week. The theme is “Start Your Engines,” reminding everyone that school breakfast provides a healthy and energizing start to the day for students.

Studies show that students who eat school breakfast are more likely to:

  • Reach higher levels of achievement in reading and math
  • Score higher on standardized tests
  • Have better concentration and memory
  • Be more alert
  • Maintain a healthy weight

To celebrate National School Breakfast Week, all JSD school cafeterias which serve breakfast, invite students to eat breakfast for free on Thursday, March 7. It is a great opportunity to “Start Your Engines,” and begin the day on a healthy note.

Thanks to our amazing lunch ladies and cafeteria staff for the work they do each and every day to provide tasty and nutritious meals for the students, teachers and staff.
