As part of First Lady Michelle Obama's 'Let's Move' campaign Lakewood Elementary School earned the Bronze Award in the HealthierUS School Challenge.  

By putting an emphasis on serving nutritious food and promoting physical activity and wellness, schools across the country have the ability to help students make lifelong healthy changes.  Lakewood Elementary had to meet the criteria set forth by the USDA Food and Nutrition Service and commit to meeting it during the four years it takes to become a certified HealthierUS School.
