World School Milk Day – September 26, 2018

What is World School Milk Day?

World School Milk Day (WSMD), celebrated annually on the last Wednesday of September, is an exciting day full of activities that highlight the health benefits and value of milk in schools.


WSMD is an engaging way to teach students about the importance of drinking milk as part of a healthy, balanced diet with an emphasis on milk as an excellent source of vitamins and minerals that kids need to stay alert and ready to learn.

Celebrating its 19th year, the event has grown to be celebrated in more than 40 countries with continued growth each year. WSMD brings attention to school milk and allows all countries to celebrate school milk on the same day. WSMD is sponsored by the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations.

Newton-Conover City Schools Celebrate National School Lunch Week

"Lots 2 Love"


To recognize the National School Lunch Program and the 30 million children it serves every day, Newton-Conover City Schools will recognize National School Lunch Week from October 15-19, 2018.


The federally-funded National School Lunch Program (NSLP) was signed into law in 1946 (Richard B. Russell Act), and is the largest of the federal child nutrition programs.


The week recognizes the importance of a healthy school lunch in a child’s life, and the impact it has inside and outside of the classroom. 


School nutrition programs play a critical role in ensuring all students, regardless of income level, receive nutritious lunches which follow strict federal nutrition standards. Every school lunch features servings of fruits and vegetables, whole-grains, lean protein, and low-fat dairy.
