We had a great kickoff to National School Lunch Week on Monday, October 10th! First, students at B-L Elementary School got to enjoy having the PET Cow at their school for the official launch of strawberry milk in the school cafeteria. Strawberry milk is now a drink option at all four of Lexington Three's schools! Then, over at B-L Middle and B-L High Schools, a new Smart Mouth brand pizza flavor got kicked off! Students now have the option of choosing a BBQ chicken pizza when they go through our lunch lines. Some of our district administrators even got in on the fun of making the new pizzas and serving them to students at BLHS! We also gave away some Smart Mouth pizza swag to our students.
