Liberty Elementary and Button Gwinnett Elementary schools are celebrating National School Breakfast Week from March 7-11.
To mark the occasion, Midway Mayor Clemontine Washington visited Liberty Elementary and Mayor Pro Tem Charles Frasier visited Button Gwinnett. Both officials signed National School Breakfast week proclamations last week as students and staffers surrounded them.
At LES, Principal Chris Anderson joined Washington for the signing.
School nutrition manager Francis Kennedy said she and her staff will be on the lookout for children who eat breakfast so they can congratulate the student for starting their day off with a nutritious meal.
At Button Gwinnett, Principal Dr. Laverne Halliburton, Assistant Principal Dr. Tamela Scharnagl and students from the school joined Frasier for the signing.
School nutrition manager Paula Butler said she and her staff hope all Button Gwinnett students will come visit them for breakfast this year.
The National School Breakfast Week theme is “School breakfast detectives — the search for super energy.” The celebration began in 1989 to raise awareness about school breakfast programs.
Each year, the Liberty County School System takes part in the festivities by having principals and administrators serve breakfast to students while encouraging them to eat a healthy meal before they start their school day.
