Dairy Break

Student Ambassadors had the idea to take a dairy break during the school day. With permission from the principal and teacher, students were able to take 10 minutes to eat some string cheese. The Student Ambassadors discussed the benefits of dairy while taking their dairy break. Students said they felt refocused and energized afterwards. I would recommend that this become a common practice throughout the school year.

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

I will request a grant to provide healthy snacks throughout the school year. Classes will be picked randomly to take a healthy snack break during the school day. Teachers will be given a reflection form to fill out each time their class takes a healthy snack break.
