San Antonio Students Get Off to a Good Start for STAAR Testing with FREE Breakfast at McDonald’s
The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness, commonly referred to as its acronym STAAR are a series of standardized tests used in Texas public primary and secondary schools to assess a student’s achievements and knowledge learned in the grade level. These tests put a lot of stress on students, parents and schools alike.
As we all know, students who eat a wholesome and healthy breakfast preform better throughout the day. The STAAR test is coming up next week and McDonald’s is making sure students begin their day with a healthy meal by offering free breakfast on Tuesday, April 9, in the San Antonio area.
Students grades three through eight, as well as teachers, can visit their local participating McDonald’s from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. to enjoy their choice of an Egg White Delight McMuffin Sandwich or Fruit and Maple Oatmeal, apple slices, and their choice of 1% low fat milk or an Honest Kids Apple Juice Box.
Studies have shown that students who eat a healthy breakfast on the day of a standardized test perform better than those who skip breakfast. McDonald’s Owners and Operators are committed to helping students start their day off right with a complete, healthy, and nutritious breakfast.
San Antonio McDonald’s Owner/Operator Maria Acosta says, “Serving our community and our students are important to all of us, we’re committed to giving them a balanced meal for such an important day such as when they take the STAAR. We would like to wish all the students and teachers the best of luck on this important day.
Students should visit a participating McDonald’s with a parent or guardian and teachers need a valid teacher/school identification. Most San Antonio-area locations will participate in the breakfast giveaway, but you should call ahead to make sure your local location is offering the free breakfast.
Let’s get our kids off to a healthy start at McDonald’s!
