Four Newton Schools win silver awards from USDA
On Friday, Thomas Jefferson Elementary School kicked off the awards assemblies for the four Newton Community School District elementary buildings. All four buildings received HealthierUS School Challenge Silver Awards.
The awards, which were started in 2004, celebrate schools who are a part of the National Lunch Program and have taken strides to voluntarily create healthier schools.
“This is a very exciting morning for us at Thomas Jefferson, because we have earned a very special award,” TJ Principal Lisa Sharp said during the assembly. “With the help of a lot of people, it was a team effort, Mrs. Crosson and the help of our own TJ cooks; they are serving us much healthier food.”
