We are SO Brilliant!

Jamie Oliver's Twitter Feed at about 11:30 April 21, 2011
Today is Earth Day at our school, so we were busy calculating how many lights were out in the school when Mrs. Peters came in to tell us that Mrs. Swelander's sister called the school from Kelowna, BC to say Jamie Oliver was tweeting our Milk Revolution Page on Twitter.  After finishing our work, we went back to class and were shocked to see how many people from all over the world have visited our site.  Now we are keeping track on a map for social studies.

Here are some of our thoughts about the response to our blog:

~"Usually this wouldn't happen to any ordinary grade four classroom."
~Now that we have Jamie Oliver saying we are brilliant maybe people will believe us and we can make a difference."
~"I wonder if Jamie Oliver wants to visit Edmonton in June."
~"We're trying to make a difference and it's so nice that other people agree with us."
~"Jamie Oliver has really helped us out with this project."

On Tuesday we're rolling out step one of the Milk Revolution.  Stay tuned for further change.


  1. Well done, this is a fantastic blog with lots of excellent research and information.
    Keep up the good work.

  2. Congratulations to you and your class. Never underestimate the power of a fourth grader--kids have strong voices and should be heard, too! I look forward to following your "Milk Revolution". Keep up the GREAT work!

  3. You are brilliant! And so is your teacher. ;) Keep up the good work.

  4. Found you from Food Revolution Community on Facebook. Good JOB!

  5. Fantastic work everyone! Keep it up! :)

  6. Greetings from Australia. You're doing great work :)

    May I suggest that before the next assembly, you calculate how much sugar is in a week's worth of chocolate milk (if you were to drink it every day). Displaying that much sugar next to the one you already have might be dramatic.

    I also wonder if you've seen Jaime Oliver's TED talk from last year? It's very inspiring

    If that link doesn't work, you can find it at YouTube by searching "Jaime Oliver Ted speech". It's about 20mins long and worth the watch.

  7. Greetings from Saint Louis, Missouri! Congratulations on this great project! You guys are the heart of this movement.
