Troy Area School Districted Celebrates
National School Breakfast Week! 3/8/21-3/12/21!
The Bradford County Dair Association graciously agreed to provide "Molly the Purple Cow" to greet students at WR Croman Primary School and Troy Intermediate School as students participated in the Free School Breakfast Program. Every student in the Troy Area School District is able to get free breakfast and free lunch during the 2020/2021 school year.
Troy's breakfast promotion was "Score Big at Breakfast with the Purple Cow". The cafeteria was decorated with Pennsylvania Harvest posters. The PA Harvest of the Month for March is Dairy.
The breakfast menu was Upstate Yogurt or cereal, with toast and a choice of fruit or fruit juice with low fat white or chocolate milk. We served 124 students WR Croman which is 35% of the enrollment. We served 172 students at the Troy Intermediate School which is 37% of the enrollment. We would love to see an increase in our participation. We are hoping through promotions such as this, it will entice students to participate.
Dr. Eric Stair, Troy's Superintendent, along with Mr. Steve Brion, Troy's Primary and Intermediate School Principal realize and support the importance of breakfast and are always willing to help promote events such as this. The students were very excited. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
The PTSO at WR Croman and the Troy Intermediate School hae teamed up with the Food Service Depoartment to provide a Hershe's Ice Cream treat to all students on Wednesday, March 17th in honor of Dairy Promotion for the PA Harvest of the Month.
Below are some pictures from our "Score Big at Breakfast with the Purple Cow" promotion.

"Message: Hi Bonnie! When we got home this evening, my 7-year-old was helping me put the food in the fridge/freezer. He said, "They sure did take a lot of time putting everything in bags for us." He was very impressed, happy, and appreciative. :). I asked him if we should send you a thank you note, and he said yes. Thank you very much for your time and efforts, and thank you for this service! Please tell your staff we appreciate their hard work!"
