PCR-I Wants Your Feedback: Breakfast Options

Good morning, this past fall the Putnam County R-I Board of Education engaged our school district in a strategic planning process. During that process, one item that became clear is that there is some concern regarding our school breakfast program. Sarah Bradshaw, food service director, and I need your help. Please read and take time to complete the survey to help us guide our breakfast program into the future. The survey link will be available until May 8th.   Breakfast is critical to learning and health, so it’s important that children do not start the school day hungry. Children who eat a nutritious breakfast have improved classroom performance, better test scores and grades, increased ability to concentrate and focus, as well as decreased disciplinary issues, tardiness, and visits to the nurse.   . . .
