Access to Healthy Foods
One of our major goals this school year is to encourge healthy food choices, both at home and school. We have chosen to accomplish this goal by educating our students at Tom Lea. Our 5th grade Media Elective has been tackling the endeavor with the help of our wonderful Media Teacher and librarian by developing educational videos during our You Tube live morning announcements on "Wellness Wednesday". Many of our students don't qualify for free or reduced lunch, but have full time career parents that leave the lunch packing choices to their children. We are hoping that with this technological way of reaching our students, they will make healthy food choices a priority!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students and teachers are creating videos to show to the school. Healthy food choices start with adults and we are trying to influence the children to make those choices.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students are more informed about healthy foods and are bringing healthy snacks and foods to school.
