Congratulations to the Nutrition Department staff at Campbellsburg Elementary School (CES) for winning the Helen Davis Marketing Hall of Fame Best 2019-2020 School Promotion through the Kentucky School Nutrition Association.
CES Cafeteria Manager Toni Jackson, along with her staff, created an “out of this world” space theme to promote National School Breakfast Week earlier this school year. The serving line and cafeteria were decorated with moons, stars and spaceships, staff dressed in NASA shirts and students were encouraged to participate through a class contest.
Teachers at the school pitched in to support the week. Art teacher Lori Armstrong allowed class time for students to create their own “Breakfast is Outta This World” drawing which were all displayed in the kitchen and cafeteria. P.E. teacher Leah Klempner created lesson plans on the importance of eating a nutritious breakfast.
The class with the highest breakfast participation numbers at the end of the week received a free ice cream at lunch, sponsored by the PTSO. Due to their efforts, Jackson reported a 26.3 percent increase in students eating breakfast for the week.
