To encourage more families to take advantage of the healthy choices available for school breakfast, the Smackover-Norphlet School District will celebrate National School Breakfast Week during March 5-9, 2018.

- Score higher on standardized tests
- Have better concentration, memory, and alertness
- Have improved attendance, behavior, and academic performance
- Maintain a healthy weight
The theme for this week is, “I Heart School Breakfast.” Make sure you check out the special breakfast menus this week:
- Monday – Strawberry Pancakes
- Tuesday – Cheese Omelets
- Wednesday – Breakfast Sausage Pizza
- Thursday – Pig in a Blanket
- Friday – French Toast Sticks
All meals are served with fruit juice or milk. Students also have the option of choosing a whole grain cereal with toast or crackers if they prefer that to the listed menu items.
