COPPERAS COVE — Nearly 70 percent of Copperas Cove ISD’s students are enrolled in the free and reduced price meal plan at their respective schools. As the percentage of families in-need continues to climb, CCISD is now offering free breakfast to all students in the district.

Williams/Ledger Elementary first grader and the reigning Jr. Mister Five Hills Jackson Gibbs is hosting the 2nd Annual Lil’ Dawg and Lil’ Lady Dawg Homecoming Dance on Saturday to create a weekend backpack program at his school to provide meals for his fellow students.
