Dierzen Dairy Week
Dec 9-13 was Dairy Week at VDELC. Each day students and staff were given a dairy fact to learn. Dairy games were played in gym class and dairy books were available in the library. A cardboard cow came to visit some of the classrooms and the cafeteria was decorated with dairy posters and white banners. On Friday, everyone was asked to either wear a mustache or cow hat. The Midwest Dairy Council stopped by to visit at lunch time.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Staff and students participated in wearing a mustache or hat on Friday

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

We really wanted the cafeteria decorated but it is very large. We used banners from the ceiling and borrowed dairy posters from the McHenry County Farm Bureau.
