Chocolate Milk District Presentation

Chocolate Milk District Presentation

On Thursday, October 1st, a team of sixth graders presented their opinion about a controversial issue to the OUSD Wellness committee. Beginning this journey last year, it’s the students’ hope that the evidence they presented will persuade the district to put chocolate milk back on the school lunch menu.  Let’s give a big “Shout Out” to these dedicated students who are trying their best to convince our leaders that student’s opinions and words matter!
