Lincoln Elementary was the first of several Mount Vernon schools to mobilize the school community to increase physical activity and healthy nutrition options for students. Parents, school administrators, community volunteers and teachers worked with the Mount Vernon Healthy Communities Project and Leadership Skagit to form an advisory committee, conduct a school assessment and develop an action plan to improve school nutrition and physical activity for the school’s 375 students. Implementation of the plan began in the 2005-2006 school year.

Progress toward each of the plan’s objectives is being tracked by the Lincoln School Healthy School Pilot Committee and Mount Vernon Healthy Communities. Student involvement in activities, use of the salad bar, and preferences related to lunch alternative choices are also being monitored.
