Celebrating National School Breakfast Week

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and schools provide millions of breakfasts to hungry children every single school day!  This gives us reason to celebrate! 

Every March, the nation celebrates National School Breakfast Week. National School Breakfast Week was launched in 1989 to raise awareness of the availability of the School Breakfast Program to all children.

Governor Asa Hutchinson has proclaimed March as Arkansas School Breakfast Month!

Governor Hutchinson’s proclamation increases public awareness, provides school food service administrators a wonderful opportunity to promote the breakfast program, benefiting thousands of students in Arkansas.

JNPSD’s Director of Child Nutrition Clint Walker spoke of the District’s Community Eligibility Program where all students eat free at today’s press conference at the Capitol.

Titan Theater Company to Present Guys and Dolls

Jacksonville High School’s Titan Theater Company will present the classical musical comedy Guys and Dolls, March 10 and 11, 7pm in the Sandy Reed Auditorium at Jacksonville Middle School located at 718 Harris Road in Jacksonville.

Guys and Dolls, based on the short stories and characters of Damon Runyon, tells a comedic tale of the gamblers, showgirls and gangsters of the 1930s New York underworld. Director Jane Balgavy said “Guys and Dolls is a great show for any theatre to do, because it is full of comedy with a lot of classic one-liners; and the writing is fantastic, providing many opportunities for character roles. It is a really fun show for the whole family.”

Adult admission is $8 and students 17 and under pay $5.

Learning to Speak the Language of Computers

Gabriel Lloyd, Chauncey Butler and Lanna Rogers, students in Rick Kron's fifth grade class at Arnold Drive, recently completed the Hour of Code. The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code" to show that anyone can learn the basics and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science.
