AG DAY at Riverdale
- Melissa Secker, Riverdale Elem School
- Access to Healthy Foods, Community Involvement, Physical Activity Participation
This is the 3rd annual AG Day event at our school. We have local farmers come to the school to talk about farming, tractors, animals, etc. We had several community members volunteer their time to present to all K-5 students in our building. Our Fuel Up to Play 60 program provided a healthy snack station. We provided cheese, beef sticks, and milk. The students had a choice between chocolate, white and strawberry milk. We discussed where the meat, cheese, and milk came from and related it to our farmers and the stations that they had already visited that day. We also had some trivia questions for each grade level regarding healthy eating, being active, and Agriculture. This event is a huge success and is always a kids favorite.
