Breakfast with the Wilson County News
Students in Beverly LaFrance’s third-grade class read the Wilson County News to learn about current events as well as practice their reading skills, all while enjoying breakfast.
Students at Floresville North Elementary School are served a free breakfast each day as part of the Breakfast in the Classroom initiative.
Research shows that eating breakfast at school helps children learn. It leads to higher achievement, better focus and behavior, and an increase in attendance. Through this program children experience the benefit of enjoying nutritionally well-balanced foods in the classroom to start their school day.
Floresville North Elementary School also participates in the Wilson County News Newspapers In Education program. Every school year, the WCN provides free copies of the weekly newspaper to classroom teachers for educational purposes. Beverly LaFrance, a third-grade teacher at FNES, is combining these two beneficial programs to maximize her instructional time and get students started on the right foot each morning.
