Golfview Elementary School in Community School District 300 is officially "Gold with Distinction." In taking the Healthier US School Challenge, Golfview improved their school lunch menus, provided 90 minutes of physical education year round for all students, and included nutrition education as part of their curriculum. Golfview will be honored by the United States Department of Agriculture as the first non-chartered school in Illinois, and among the first schools in the entire United States, to earn this honor.

When I heard this news, I took to the streets of New York City and started singing... and dancing... to tell everyone what an amazingly healthy school Golfview is! And we filmed it! It's an original song and music video written just for D300 in celebration of their challenge conquered. The video also features students from Golfview Elementary, Principal Trish Whitecotton, PE Teacher Lianne Tompkins, and food service employees from Aramark. The video debuts at the Golfview award ceremony on February 4th.

The Gold with Distinction award is endorsed by First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move! campaign to reduce childhood obesity. The February 4th ceremony at Golfview is well timed to the first anniversary of the national Let's Move! campaign launch. This video is also a sneak peak for the weeks to follow for The Rockstar Nutritonist. The rock 'n roll nutrition show Jump with Jill show will be coming to Carpentersville, IL for 22 performances from Feb 7 to Feb 18th.
