Bookstore Goes Healthy

I made suggestions like fruits, yogurt, granola bars, and a veggie chip alternative for our bookstore! Coach made no promises but agreed to pilot my idea in the coming weeks. Monday he invited me over to see the bookstore and all my suggestions were added. He even let me stage some of the goodies up on the counters for better view! The word is spreading among the students but also the teachers and staff. I arrived early today to stand outside the bookstore and congratulate students on healthier choices. These are just baby steps to a greater success school-wide, but I'm excited about the future of the Patriot Power Team!

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

Promotion of healthier snacks around the school! Adding signs in the Cafe, adding announcements before and mid-day.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

We are still faced with the challenges of changing eating habits. I think the more we promote school-wide the more successful we will be in changing the mindset of the students.
