Elementary Principal Andrew Andrew Currie held an assembly of the students to explain the hon- or. He held up the plaque from Michelle Obama asking the stu- dents if they knew who she was. Hands of students eager to an- swer shot up. Currie explained that the chal- lenge to schools to promote nu- tritious eating habits and increased physical activity because one in three children in the country are obese or unhealthy. Started in 2004, the voluntary certification was created to rec- ogniZe schools participating in the National School Lunch Pro- gram. In 2010, Mrs. Obama in- troduced the Let's Move program and incorporated the challenge into the campaign as a way to raise a healthier generation of kids. According to the USDA website, it was at that time that monetary in- centive awards became available for each HUSSC award level, which includes bronze, silver, gold, and gold award of distinc- tion. As of Sept. 18, 2013, 6,560 schools had been certified in 49 states and the District of Colum- bia. Tami Rostvet, elementary sec- retary; Valery Gullickson, ele- mentary phy-ed teacher; and Crowder worked to make the award possible. Crowder explained that they participated in the challenge the year before schools were asked to change their standards to serve stricter nutritional guidelines. She said that by going through the chal- lenge, it prepared her for the new guidelines and made the transition easier for both the staff and the stu- dents. Crowdersaid that She credits the teachers for helping to en- courage the students to try new foods. She recently served brussel sprouts to the school of nearly 80 students and though there were about 10 who said they liked them, there were many who prob- ably never would have tried them otherwise. Currie told the students that they want to "make sure that you guys are not in the one in three." In addition to offering healthy snacks thanks to a grant and changing the menu to increase fruits and vegetables at mealtime and switch to whole grains, the school also is promoting an in- crease in physical activity. Gul- lickson asked the students how many minutes of physical activi- ty they should do each day. Hands shot up. After a few guesses, one student got the an- swer: one hour or 60 minutes. Rostvet wrote the paperwork for the award, which she said she had to send to the state and make several revisions on before they fi- nally had enough information to send to the national level. They sent lunch menus, listing the fruit and vegetables provided to the stu- dents, clocked the minutes that the students participated in phys-ed and recess, and they included in- formation about healthy habits that the teachers promote in the classroom. Currie said that what they were looking for is promoting five be- haviors: eating a variety of foods; increasing fruits, vegetables, and grains; promoting low-fat foods; increasing calcium rich foods; and increasing physical activi- ties. Of those, he said to the students, a large part of the focus is nutri- tional habits. "That tells you how important food choices are," he said. They spent the rest of the af- ternoon participating in fun ac- tivities with Gullickson before having an apple snack and watch- ing a video ofBiU Nye the Science Guy about digestion. "Remember when you're doing these fun activities, there's a rea- son we can and it is because of awards like this," Currie said adding that the students should all thank Betty, Tami, and Val for their part in the award because they didn't do it for themselves. "They did this for you."
