Thanks to the generous support of our community, CAMS is fortunate to have our own Breakfast Program that runs Monday to Friday. Students arriving at school are greeted by our Cafeteria staff preparing a healthy breakfast in our lobby.  Students enjoy toast, bagels, English muffins, yogurt, cheese, milk, juice and a variety of others surprises.

A good breakfast means that a child is better prepared to learn.  However, today’s fast paced lifestyle sometimes prevents children from sitting down to a balanced breakfast before heading off to school.

Studies have shown that a good breakfast is an important part of a student’s day.  A good breakfast has been shown to:

  • Help students focus in class
  • Decrease behaviour incidents and visits to the office
  • Decrease tardiness
  • Decrease absenteeism
  • Help students do better on tests
  • Improve overall academic performance

Thanks to a Breakfast for Learning Grant from the Department of Education, financial support from the South Shore Regional School Board, as well as fundraising at the school level, we are able to provide this service to all students.
Want to make a difference in a child’s life? Donate to our breakfast program!

A donation of only $20.00 will feed 17 students. A donation of $50.00 will feed 47 students. If you would like to help, please stop by the office or mail us a cheque payable to Chester Area Middle School Breakfast Program.
