STAR breakfast
When / Frequency

Annually - Spring semester


PTSA provides a healthy snack and beverage to all freshmen, sophomores, and juniors who sit for the STAR testing for all 4 days of testing. This successful program has been expanded to encompass the AP exam takers as well. Order and purchase snacks from Costco and request delivery to school. Some food items are not delivered, need to be pick up at Costco. (If you have a Minivan or Truck this is very helpful.) Order supplies needed for STAR breakfast. (Bags, napkins etc.) Make labels for 65 homerooms for snacks and beverages for 4 days of testing including labels for the AP test rooms. The PTSA funds all snacks, beverages, and supplies. (We recycle the emergency supply of bottled water and granola bars, use these items first)
