Nutrition for Learning


The JHSS Breakfast Club is up and running!

The Breakfast Club is a student nutrition program available to ALL students at JHSS.

It is a FREE program which offers a wide variety of healthy food options.

We are located in the Hawk’s Nest (across from the East gym) between 7:30am-8:00am.

Each year we apply to several grants available to student nutrition programs.  The past 2 years we have submitted videos to the OTIP Sponsorship of School Programs . Last year we were successful with this video, JHSS Breakfast Club 2017 and won a $5000 grant.  This year we were not as successful but we are very proud of our students with their 2018 submission, OTIP Grant Video 2018. We are very proud of our students who created these videos and cannot wait to see what they come up with next year!

Thank you Mr Lambert and your Future Forums classes for supporting the JHSS Breakfast Club!
