Let's Celebrate National School Breakfast Week -
Submitted by: Dani Bell

March 5-9, Logan-Hocking School District is joining our Breakfast in the Classroom Partners & celebrating National School Breakfast Week! This campaign, themed "I Heart School Breakfast", reminds the entire school community that school breakfast provides a healthy & energizing start to the day for students.

This past year, LHSD became the first Southeastern Ohio district to be awarded a grant from the Partners for Breakfast in the Classroom -a joint initiative from the Food Research & Action Center (FRAC), National AssocIation of Elementary School Principals (NAESPF), the NEA Foundation & School Nutrition Foundation (SNF) -to increase participation in the School Breakfast Program. Additionally, Children's Hunger Alliance (CHA), plays a vital role in this program, by assisting greatly with the grant process & pilot. Walmart Foundation makes it all possible, by funding the grant.

Currently, all (5) of our Logan-Hocking Elementary Schools receive a free breakfast at school.

Did you know school breakfast is linked to:
Improved academic & behavioral outcomes?
Improved attendance?
Improved concentration, memory & alertness?

Join us March 5-9 as we celebrate National School Breakfast Week, as we share the upcoming photos & stories from each of our elementary schools, in an effort to help raise awareness of the importance of school breakfast.
