We have snack about 10:00 (we start school at 8:40). Students are asked to bring a healthy snack. If they don't have a snack, they can take 10 "emergency" pretzels I provide (cheap and filling). During this 5-10 minute break they can eat, sharpen pencils and use the bathroom (located in our room). It provides a mini-break for students to refresh themselves and tides them over until their 11:40 lunchtime.
