    Posted by Julie Bone on 3/20/2018

    Cafeterias throughout Morgan County Schools celebrated "National School Breakfast Week" through participation in the "I Heart School Breakfast" campaign March 5-9, 2018. The "I Heart School Breakfast" campaign was designed to raise awareness of the many benefits of school breakfast. The winning schools were chosen based on their percentage of increased participation in the program. The names of students participating in Morgan County Schools breakfast programs were entered into a drawing for prizes that encourage all students to "get up, get out and get moving". Prizes awarded to the winning students were provided by local businesses and cafeteria vendors. Congratulations to the following schools and students for their participation in this year's campaign: Elvin Pablo (West Morgan Elementary); Janet Perez (Danville Neel Elementary); Levi Brown (Eva School); Maddox Brown (Priceville Junior High School); Joseph Whisenant (Danville Middle School); Isabel Folds (Eva School): Mitchell Marks and AnNaree Mitchell (Priceville High School); Annie Carden (Falkville High School); Patrick Simpson (Danville HIgh School)
