Mrs. Swelander Has Super Powers

This morning we were sent the article written about The Milk Revolution in the Edmonton Examiner.  You can read the article here.  It is a good article, but we laughed because it says Mrs. Swelander teaches grade 2 and is the principal.  No wonder Mrs. Swelander is so tired these days!  Even though it was a mistake, we just wanted to clarify that Mrs. Swelander teaches Grade 4 and that is all.  However, next year Mrs. Swelander will be moving up to grade 5 with The Milk Revolution students which means The Milk Revolution will be able to continue!

This morning Mrs. Swelander also received a tweet from @FoodRevTeam on Twitter.  They were tweeting out our MooTV address last night during a Food Revolution Twitter party.  We are so lucky to have their support.  It is so exciting to see all the hits from all over the world.  We could not be as successful without their support.

Westglen Students Get "Caught"!
This week we decided to "catch" students in lunchrooms drinking white milk and reward them with a chance to appear in MooTV Episode 3.  And speaking of MooTV Episode 3, it looks like we'll have it ready to go before the last day of school on June 28, 2011.  We've had to do most of our recording outside of class time, but it's been tricky with all the end of the school year events to fit it in.  Needless to say, Mrs. Swelander has needed her super powers this week.

 We Have Wonderful Lunchroom Supervisors!
We shared our Milk Revolution message with our lunchroom supevisors.  We invited them to come into our classroom to learn about what we've learned.  They liked our presentation and even agreed to dance for us in Episode 3 of MooTV.  Our class ilso going to help update the weekly milk orders to help make their job easier and we're going to help out Mrs. Miner handing out milk in the Grade 2, 3 & 4 lunchrooms.

  1. I can't believe how busy you have been. It is amazing that you can do all of this and still get your schoolwork done. I know you have been working very hard outside of class time.

    I love going to the grade two classes and hearing all of the students talk about the milk revolution. They thought the video game was really cool. I am glad you will be able to continue this project next year and I am looking forward to you taking on a leadership role in the school!
