Your Child Could have Free Breakfast and Lunch with CCSD Food Services
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), "Evidence shows that the health of students is linked to their academic achievement...between healthy eating, physical activity, and improved academic achievement."
Evidence on dietary behaviors and academic achievement:
■■ Student participation in the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) School Breakfast Program (SBP) is associated with increased academic grades and standardized test scores, reduced absenteeism, and improved cognitive performance (e.g., memory).
■■ Skipping breakfast is associated with decreased cognitive performance (e.g., alertness, attention, memory, processing of complex visual display, problem-solving) among students.
■■ Lack of adequate consumption of specific foods, such as fruits, vegetables, or dairy products, is associated with lower grades among students.18–20 HEALTH AND ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT
■■ Deficits of specific nutrients (i.e., vitamins A, B6, B12, C, folate, iron, zinc, and calcium) are associated with lower grades and higher rates of absenteeism and tardiness among students.
■■ Hunger due to insufficient food intake is associated with lower grades, higher rates of absenteeism, repeating a grade, and an inability to focus among students. Source

The Silvestri STEAM Academy!
Silvestri Jr. High School is a 1-to-1 Chromebook academy in which every student receives a Chromebook to use in school and at home through the Nevada Ready 21 Grant.
Silvestri was highlighted in PITSCO Education's February 2018 STEM Article.
"It was an ambitious request. Educator John Walz was asked in 2016 to build a STEAM program for Silvestri Junior High School in Las Vegas, Nevada. The vision was multifaceted: expose students to a wide range of subjects to hook their interest while also exploring key areas in greater depth – and at the same time keep the program flexible to accommodate changes that might be needed. Walz had experience to draw from, having both led a middle school educational technology program and worked in a position helping elementary and middle school teachers integrate technology in their classrooms."
