Malone School celebrates breakfast week

Malone School celebrates breakfast week

Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  So much so that our own Jackson County School District provides free breakfast every school day for all students attending school.  

Malone took the importance of the first meal of the day a step with Malone Mayor Gene Wright signing a proclamation stating the week of March 6-10, 2017 as National School Breakfast Week.  Mayor Wright kicked off the week as being a volunteer server in the lunchroom for breakfast on Monday.  School Board member Charlotte Gardner and staff from Jackson Correctional Institution were hands on help serving breakfast throughout the week.  

Cafeteria manager Tammy Blanchette praised the volunteers for their kindness to the students as they served them breakfast, “They were all so good to the students and the students really enjoyed it.  We had a lady out sick one of the days and the officers from Jackson CI came back and helped us at lunch.  They went above and beyond what was called for from them.  The kids loved the secret servers and looked forward to them every day.” Blanchette said one little girls put her hand on her forehead and said, “All these guys in the kitchen, I just can’t wait to taste it.”  

Gene Wright has been a faithful secret server for several years now, “I wouldn’t miss it. I love seeing the kids and hearing what they have to say each morning.  For some of these kids, that’s the best meal they’ll get.”

Principal Doug Powell is very appreciative of the community and the support they give Malone School, “We’re small but we are a family.  This community backs everything our school and kids do from sports to academics, to FFA, and something like this week.  We have volunteers calling us asking what they can do to help.  You can’t ask for better than that.”
