AVHS Students Enjoy Principal's Breakfast, Thanks to Career Access Students and Staff
Students and staff of Avon View High School enjoyed a delicious, hot breakfast at school on April 14, served by their principal, Mr. Johnston! The Principal's Breakfast is an annual tradition at Avon View, thanks to the cooking talents of the school's Career Access students and staff. On a daily basis, these same students and staff, along with many other staff volunteers, also provide breakfast to about 100 students, and they supply healthy snacks at lunch. This hands-on learning opportunity ensures that students can get the nutrition they need for the school day. The daily school nutrition program at Avon View is supported by Breakfast for Learning and Healthy School Communities.
