    Breakfast is perhaps the most underappreciated and overlooked meal of our day. We tend to skip it altogether or grab something that is not very good for us such as a doughnut. But, just as Mom used to say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day for all of us and especially children and teens.

    Here seven reasons breakfast should be a part of your daily routine.

    We are two days away from the start of another fantastic school year.

    Wednesday is our first day of school. The first day certainly creates a hustle and bustle that is comparable to the holiday season. There is a sense of anxiousness and excitement among our teachers and our students. I look forward to the first day each year.

    Student success is the reason our faculty and staff work so hard to prepare, teach, evaluate and reflect. We’re working to create a better world one child at a time.
