Students at Ankeny’s East Elementary celebrate the school’s receiving a Silver Award in the USDA’s HealthierUS School Challenge, a voluntary national certification initiative for schools participating in the National School Lunch Program.

The school was honored, in part, for putting in place healthy choices for meals, nutrition education and physical education and activity. In addition, the school distributed water bottles to students for the school day.


Hillis Elementary in Des Moines also received a Silver Award.
