Celebrating National School Breakfast Week
March 7-11 is National School Breakfast Week. Did you know School District 27J serves up about 1,700 breakfast meals a day at the elementary, middle and high school level? Breakfast meals have been served in 27J schools for more than 12 years. "It is difficult for students to concentrate on learning if they are hungry," said Nutrition Services Supervisor Nichole Poppie. "Eating a nutritious breakfast helps with academic achievement as well as behavior in the classroom." Pictured, friends Alastair Clark and Roman Garcia eat breakfast at Second Creek Elementary School.
Warmth and Love from Prairie View FFA members
A community service project by the Future Farmers of America Club at Prairie View High School will bring comfort and warmth to hospital patients. The students made 28 blankets out of fleece material donated by business Novelty Quilt Fabric. The blankets will be donated to patients at Children’s Hospital of Colorado and the local Veteran’s Hospital.
