Sunset Valley Elementary was among a number of Lee’s Summit R-7 schools celebrating National School Breakfast Week during early March. On March 10, special guests during breakfast included KC Wolf of the Kansas City Chiefs and representatives from Coldwater and Abundant Life.
Coldwater and Abundant Life are involved in active food pantries within Lee’s Summit and visited the school to learn about the breakfast program. This information will help the food pantry representatives inform families with children about the availability of the Lee’s Summit R-7 school breakfast program.
The representatives told school staff members that they were impressed with the breakfast program, which is available at all schools. The guests also toured classrooms to observe students eating breakfast at their desks. Students are able to pick up their breakfasts, go to classrooms, sit down to eat breakfast and work on homework or read books. Teachers shared that the students are much calmer since they have the opportunity to sit down, eat breakfast and be ready to start the day.
In addition to visiting during breakfast, KC Wolf stopped for a visit with students in the school’s medically fragile program.
