Breakfast in the Classroom Featured in New Video

A new video prepared by the Food Services Department helps train staff and educate parents on the district's popular Breakfast in the Classroom program. Now in more than 50 schools, the Breakfast in the Classroom program has won national awards by providing healthy and nutritious breakfasts to elementary school students every day.
Produced this summer at Logan Elementary, students demonstrated their roles and responsibilities, while teacher Irma McCoy talked about the benefits to the classroom and principal Antonio Villar focused on the benefits to the school.

The video was created in response to requests by teachers for an educational tool about the program. The video is available online at www.sandi.net/food, select the Breakfast in the Classroom video link.

Nine more elementary schools are slated begin Breakfast in the Classroom this Fall. For more information about Breakfast in the Classroom contact Norma Johnson at njohnson4@sandi.net or 858-627-7308.
