Breakfast Bunch

Breakfast Bunch is a program specifically designed for those students needing supervised care and breakfast before the regular school day begins.  The program is held on all school days and opens at 7:00 a.m. Breakfast Bunch for kindergarten students takes place at the Pittaway School, 1st and 2nd graders attend Breakfast Bunch at the Warren School, and 3rd through 5th graders attend Breakfast Bunch at the Mindess School.    


Children may choose from a variety of offerings.  Breakfast is broken down into four groups, and children may choose one item from each group (they may have more than one serving from the fruits/vegetables group).  Children can also have milk and assorted 100% fruit juices with breakfast.  Mindess children attending Mindess for Breakfast Bunch are offered what the Mindess kitchen serves, which is very similar to these.

 Whole grains
Cereal*, toast, bagels, breakfast bars, 
Nutri-grain bars, granola bars, cinnamon rolls (occasionally) 

Milk, yogurt, cheese

Hard boiled eggs, string cheese, sunflower seeds

Cantaloupe, strawberries, kiwi,  bananas, grapes, apples, pineapple, peaches, pears, blueberries, carrots, pickles, salsa

*Cereals available:   Reduced Sugar Fruit Loops, RS Cocoa Puffs, Cheerios, Multi-grain Cheerios, Apple Cinnamon Cheerios, Fruity Cheerios, Rice Krispies, Crispix, RS Frosted Flakes,  RS Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Kix


Our Breakfast Bunch program is a loosely structured block of time where children can socialize, play, create, eat breakfast, and exercise muscles.  All students may choose how they spend their Breakfast Bunch time.


*Breakfast Bunch is closed if school is cancelled or delayed.

*The front entrance to the Warren School is locked.  Please ring the buzzer once and a Breakfast Bunch staff member will let you in.  Warren School front office staff are not expected to buzz people in.

*Parents of Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd graders need to walk their child into the EDP/Breakfast Bunch classroom.  Please do not drop your child off at the front curb or door for obvious safety reasons.

Parents of Mindess students may drop off their child at the middle doors IF the little yellow man that says, "Children at Play" is outside. This is your cue that we are staffed and ready to go. Please do not drive away until you see your child enter the building. You also are welcomed to come into the building any time you'd like.

This program is specifically designed for kindergarten students and the particular needs of children just entering public school for the first time.  We believe this will make for an easier transition for them, and help start the school year off on a bright note.  The children will be able to play, socialize, create and eat breakfast during their time here.  At 8:25, the Breakfast Bunch staff will put the children on the bus and they will be bussed to the Warren School.  No bus pass is needed for this.  A Warren School staff member will take the children from the bus and escort them to their kindergarten classroom lines.
