KINGMAN - Ba Da Ba Da Da - free breakfast.

McDonald's establishments throughout Arizona, including the three in Kingman, are offering students in 3rd- through 8th-grade free breakfast the first two days of Arizona Instrument for Measuring Standards testing, Monday and Tuesday.

The offer stands from 6 to 9 a.m. both days and includes an Egg McMuffin and an order of apple slices. To quench their thirst, students get three choices: 1-percent milk, fat-free chocolate milk or a small Minute Maid orange juice.

Those looking to get in on the offer must be with a parent. No substitutions will be offered, and the offer only stands while supplies last.

Phoenix and northern Arizona McDonald's restaurants served more than 22,000 students a free breakfast on exam day in 2011.

"Whether students eat at home, at their schools or at McDonald's, it's important to have a well-balanced breakfast every day, especially before taking an exam like the AIMS," said Shane Thompson in a release. Thompson owns and operates several McDonald's restaurants in Phoenix. "As many members of the McDonald's family are parents themselves, we feel it is important for us to contribute to the well-being of children in our communities."

The three McDonald's locations in Kingman include one at 3264 E. Andy Devine Ave, one inside the local Wal-Mart, 3396 Stockton Hill Road, and one across from Wal-Mart near the corner of Airway Avenue and Stockton Hill Road.
