  7. Surfs Up with School...

To encourage more families to take advantage of the healthy choices available with school breakfast, our schools will celebrate National School Breakfast Week (NSBW) during March 4-8, 2024.

Busy weekday mornings make it a challenge for many families to find time for a healthy breakfast. Fortunately, APCSD schools offer nutritious school breakfasts, complete with fruit and low-fat or fat-free milk, to ensure students are fueled for learning every school day.

The NSBW campaign theme, “Surfs Up with School Breakfast,” reminds the entire school community 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

School nutrition professionals and students will be encouraged to show their enthusiasm for school breakfast from March 4-8 as the district celebrates NSBW with special menus, activities, and more. We are featuring some great new breakfast items so that we can eat like a surfer! We will be featuring delicious smoothies as well at the High School.

“A healthy breakfast at the start of the day is a great way to ensure students are nourished and ready to learn,” said Rick Welling, School Nutrition Director. “National School Breakfast Week helps us educate parents and students about all the nutritious and delicious choices we offer. We are looking forward to student feedback on the new offerings!”

About National School Breakfast Week:

National School Breakfast Week was launched in 1989 to raise awareness of the availability of the School Breakfast Program, a federally assisted meal program operating in public and non-profit private schools and residential child care institutions since 1975.
