Miss Mitchell's Breakfast Club is helping junior high students start the day off right. Whether students need nourishment for their tummies or for their minds, either can be found in Miss Mitchell's classroom in the early morning before the regular school day begins. She calls it "The Breakfast Club," but it's really more about math and growth and achievement. Students who are looking for some extra help in math can find it in the seventh grade classroom.
