Providing a healthy start to the school day is important for learning!
Mornings can be rushed, but taking time to eat a nutritious meal is important for children. For parents with busy schedules, it can be difficult to make sure children are eating breakfast before they leave for school. If breakfast at home is a challenge, Watervliet’s school breakfast program could be the perfect solution!
Studies show that school breakfast participation can help improve test scores, increase concentration in class, and improve classroom behavior. The school breakfast program is available to all students every weekday morning. We encourage you to make sure children begin the school day with a healthy meal from the school breakfast program!

Thank you for helping to make sure that our students start the school day alert and ready to learn.
