Rosemary Elementary School

Take the Breakfast Challenge!

Take the "Breakfast Challenge" at Rosemary School. Arrive at the cafeteria between 7:20 am and 7:45 am to school and have breakfast with us. The challenge will be from Dec 4th to Dec 19th. Each student who comes in for breakfast will receive a ticket each day. The class with the most tickets will receive a free dress day.

Eating breakfast can improve cognitive performance, test scores and achievement scores in students, especially in younger children. According to a study published in the journal “Archives of Pediatrics and

Adolescent Medicine," students who increased their participation in school breakfast programs had significantly higher math scores than students who skipped or rarely ate breakfast. As an added benefit, the group of students who increased breakfast participation also had decreased rates of tardiness and absences.
