Breakfast at WCI
Announcing WCI’s Grab n Go Breakfast Program
Provide your child with school breakfast to ensure they're ready to learn
Mornings are busy and often teens are not always hungry right when they wake up. It’s easy to grab a less than healthy option when running out the door or even skip breakfast all together. Eating a nutritious breakfast (versus going to 7-eleven for a sugary beverage and salty snack) will ensure your teen is ready and able to perform in school.
School breakfast is nutritious
Today’s school meals meet strict federal nutrition standards, including limits on calories, sodium and unhealthy fats. The WCSD breakfast menu has additional nutritional standards. This includes clean label items, with no preservatives or additives, no high fructose corn syrup, high quality proteins, with many items prepared or baked freshly onsite. Please see menus here.
WCI’S breakfast menu includes hard boiled eggs, fruit smoothies, freshly baked scones & muffins, english muffin with country turkey sausage, yogurt, and bagels. Also included is a side of two fresh fruit selections and milk.
Improved Academic Performance
Making sure every child has eaten a healthy breakfast is an important but often overlooked tool to boost academic performance:
- Children who skip breakfast are less able to master the tasks necessary to do well in school.
- Children who eat breakfast at school — closer to class and test-taking time — perform better on standardized tests than those who skip breakfast or eat breakfast at home.
- Children who live in families that experience hunger have lower math scores and an increased likelihood of repeating a grade, and receive more special education services.
Breakfast Price: $3.00 and free for qualifying students. Included is an entree, two pieces of fruit and milk. Prepay online at paypams (app also available). Free for qualifying families (apply confidentially online).
The grab n go breakfast cart will be open the 30 minutes before the start of school. Students will be allowed to eat in their classrooms during first period.
