Salute to Dairy

On December 8th, the entire building participated in a Salute to Dairy.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The Wellness committee provided each teacher with Dairy Facts and all supplies needed for students to make milk mustaches. The teachers took about 5 minutes each day to talk about the Dairy Facts and about 20 minutes for students to make mustaches.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Students made milk mustaches to wear to the cafeteria at lunch time. The students colored their mustaches in accordance to what flavor of milk they preferred.

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

It was interesting figuring out how all the students at VDELC could make and wear their mustaches. We are a school of almost 800 3-6 year olds. It was decided to use printer labels for kids to color, cut out, and then stick to their face.
