Get ready! MooTV is being released on Tuesday, May 10, 2011.
Mrs. Swelander asked students to come up with an innovative way to teach other students about what they have learned about added sugar in the milk served in our lunch program. They decided that making an educational, but entertaining movie would be the best way to spread their message. This way classes can view the movie at the time that works best for them, since it is a very busy time of year with testing and such. A movie was also the best option because students could post it online. Other schools across the province or country (or world) can also view it and don't have to take the time to make their own movie. We decided anyone can use our movie for educational purposes. Our entire movie was written and acted by the students in our class, but we got help with the camera from Mrs. Swelander and Mrs. Peters. We got to use many new computer programs.

Students are preparing to speak at our Parent Association meeting May 10, 2011.
The Revolution Roll-Out hits classrooms in our school Tuesday, May 10, 2011. We will be sharing MooTV "Episode 1" as well as the video clip of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution that started our whole revolution.
Our world map has gone digital, which is much easier for keeping track of visits from around the world.
By May 13, new order forms will be going home with students so they can change their milk order. We're hoping at least 60% of students will switch to white milk. Our lunchroom coordinator said she has already noticed more white milk is being ordered. That's a great start!
The Milk Revolution is moving full-steam ahead. Spread the word!
