Taft Early Learning Center

 Wins Healthy School Award
 

 


 

May 1st was an exciting day at Taft Early Learning Center, as the school celebrated the achievement of receiving the USDAs Healthier US School Challenge (HUSSC) bronze award. Second grade students showed their pride by performing patriotic songs and demonstrating physical activity by line dancing to US Congressman James McGovern, Senator Richard Moore, Representative Kevin Kuros, School Committee Chairperson, Ernest Esposito, and Superintendent Kevin Carney, as well as faculty and staff. Congressman McGovern commended the school for this incredible achievement, stating Im going to go back to Washington, D.C. and give a speech on the House floor and talk about what you did here in Uxbridge so the whole country knows. Im going to tell the First Lady, too. McGovern mentioned that he has worked with President and First Lady Obama on health initiative programs such as HUSSC.

The school was presented with a plaque and banner by James Arena-DeRosa, North East Regional Administrator of the USDA, and Kathleen Millett, Nutrition Administrator, Massachusetts Department of Education. Principal Judi Lamarre and her staff were commended for increasing physical activity at the school by adding organized recess activities. Food Service Director, Janice Watt, attributed the success to the nutritional changes made over the past few years to the menu by adding more fruits, vegetables and whole grains, as well as the nutrition education and promotional work done by culinary nutrition interns from Johnson and Wales University.

The Healthier US School Challenge (HUSSC) is a voluntary certification initiative recognizing those schools that have created healthier school environments through promotion of nutrition and physical activity. In 2010, First Lady Michelle Obama introduced Lets Move incorporating HUSSC into her campaign to raise a healthier generation of kids. To date, HUSSC awards have been given to schools in 49 states and the District of Columbia. As of April 22, 2013, there are 6,079 schools certified, 121 of those in Massachusetts.
