ACNJ Publishes Underachiever List

Districts with high child poverty can benefit most from serving breakfast in the classroom during the first few minutes of the school day. This approach significantly boosts student participation, removing a major barrier to learning and making classroom time more productive for every child in the class. Advocates for Children of New Jersey recently released its 4th Annual NJ School Breakfast Report, including a list of high-poverty districts with low breakfast participation.

Check out the underachievers list.

Eagles Wide Receiver Visits Quinton Township

Eagles wide receiver Brad Smith visited the Quinton Township School, leading children in a fun-filled pep rally on Oct. 20. The district won the visit and a $5,000 breakfast grant for increasing its student participation in breakfast. Both prizes were sponsored by the Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association, a partner in the NJ Food For Thought School Breakfast Campaign.
