Everyone deserves a tasty, healthy breakfast, but not all of us have time in the morning to really dedicate to preparing a full meal. How do we solve this? Overnight Oatmeal!

Over the past few weeks, our Professional Development Specialist Joy Whitehead has been traveling to different sites to give staff an opportunity to try out this delicious and easy meal for themselves and to share the recipe with students. If you are a staff member that missed the DIY Pop-Up or a parent or student that wants to give it a try, you can find the recipe below.
