Thank Your Cafeteria Workers This Week

Fueling up students and staff for learning and teaching is an important part of starting and sustaining a successful day in the classroom. You know who they are. School Lunch Hero Day is May 3, 2019, and they deserve our appreciation. They are the individuals who make sure our kids and staff members get something nutritious for breakfast and a healthy lunch in the middle of the day. They do a lot of work to make sure the food is hot and served in a clean and appetizing way. It's something that these hardworking employees do every day and they do it well. Take a moment this week and thank those who make your day nutritious and delicious. For many kids, it's their favorite part of the day!


Breakfast Kiosks On The Way

During School Breakfast Week, March 4th – 8th, secondary campuses will be introducing the Breakfast Kiosk. The kiosks have been located in areas where students can see it with a “Coming Soon” sign and hopefully pique the interest of students who may want a simple Grab n Go breakfast.

The Breakfast kiosk will increase student’s access to a healthy breakfast. These kiosks are at Metzger Middle School and Wagner High School.  They're also a part of the Physical Activity plan that includes new P.E. equipment to engage students in a healthy lifestyle. Much like the Breakfast in the Classroom, Fuel Up To Play 60 funds have helped jump-start the Breakfast kiosks.

Taste Of Judson- Let Their Taste Buds Do The Talking

So what would you like for lunch? I mean really like for lunch.  That’s what the Judson ISD Child Nutrition Department was asking at its recent Taste of Judson. Different food vendors displayed their food samples and let several student groups test them out to see what they thought.  It gives students a chance to have some real say in the process of what ends up on the menu each day and even tweaking the items for better taste.  In the end, if students like what’s being served, they will eat it and be fueled up for the classroom. 



Breakfast In The Classroom Coming As Pilot!

A Message from JISD Child Nutrition… 

We are excited to introduce a pilot program of Breakfast in the Classroom for voluntary campuses throughout the district.  The campuses that have elected to participate in this program are: Candlewood Elementary, Converse Elementary, Escondido Elementary, Elolf Elementary, Paschall Elementary, and JCARE Academy and will start on January 8, 2019.   Judson ISD serves breakfast at no charge for all students at all levels.  The School Breakfast Program can be served in many ways.  Traditionally breakfast has been served in the cafeteria where students can eat prior to the school bell. An alternative method is where breakfast is served in the classroom, a complete breakfast of easy-to-eat items that meet the nutritional guidelines for students. Breakfast cereals, crispito, low-fat muffins, along with milk, juice, and fresh fruit are brought to the classroom in insulated rolling bags for students to enjoy their breakfast.  Judson ISD is piloting this program in an effort that all elementary campuses will have Breakfast in the Classroom in the 2019-2020 school year. By delivering breakfast in this manner, instructional time is not lost and the students are fed and ready to learn.   
In an effort to ensure a smooth transition to Breakfast in the Classroom at all elementary campuses District-wide for the 2019-2020 school year we are taking this opportunity to introduce the concept at participating campuses.  Providing breakfast to students improves their concentration, alertness, comprehension, memory, and learning. Breakfast in the Classroom takes the traditional school breakfast and improves it by moving it into the classroom.  There are a host of reasons that students do not regularly participate in the school breakfast program: Lack of awareness about school breakfast, lack of time to eat breakfast, and late bus schedules.  With this program, breakfast will be available to every child present which will make it possible for all children to participate. Breakfast in the Classroom has proven dramatically to increase participation in the school breakfast program throughout the nation and we are excited about this program implementation in Judson ISD and look forward to your feedback.
