https://www.youtube.com/embed/lnxyuw72wowWe implemented Tasty Tuesday earlier this year as a student led addition to our morning announcements. Our student leaders have been sharing healthy recipes and ideas on our Tuesday announcements. A few weeks ago, one of our student leaders, Lizzy S., decided that we should have students filming themselves creating or making healthy snacks and meals at home. So, we sent out permission slips and instructions about how to create these videos to be used during Tuesday morning announcements. We have begun using these student-created videos and they are a big hit. We wanted to share what happens when you provide support and guidance, but back away and let students own the responsibility. We are proud of our Akin Frogs for being such advocates for healthy living.
