This week is National School Breakfast Week!

The theme is “Take the School Breakfast Challenge” and aims to encourage parents, students and school officials to begin their morning with a healthy breakfast. Dallas ISD schools are celebrating in a variety of ways, from hosting special guests to designing posters with their favorite breakfast foods.

Free, nutritious Breakfast in the Classroom is available at all Dallas ISD schools. In elementary and middle schools, breakfast is taken to students in their classrooms. In high school, breakfast is offered in ways such as self-serve kiosks.

Students who eat breakfast have school perform better on standardized tests, are more alert and able to focus and have fewer tardy days and disciplinary referrals. Learn more about the district’s program and benefits of breakfast here.
