Lemm Lions Roar as They “Veg Out”!

When: Friday, March 1, 2013




Lemm Lions celebrated National Nutrition Month during March by challenging students and teachers to “Veg Out”. Encouraged by campus nurse, Kathy Link, RN, BSN, classes tracked how many different types of vegetables they ate, wrote poems and songs about eating healthy to share on the morning announcements, and created prints with vegetables in art class. The Lemm faculty and staff also got into the spirit by making their favorite vegetable recipes to share at a staff lunch. The class in each grade that ate the most vegetables enjoyed a picnic lunch to celebrate their healthy choices.
