Campbellsville Elementary School Wings Express students recently learned how to make their own pizzas.
Angie Freeman, expanded foods and nutrition program assistant at Taylor County Extension Office, recently came to Wings Express to read to students and talk to them about eating healthy.
Freeman read “The Little Red Hen Makes a Pizza” by Philemon Sturges and then discussed with students how they make their very own pizzas without using an oven.
Students made their own pizzas by using a corn tortilla and adding salsa, cheese, bell peppers, onions, corn and black beans.
When finished, students enjoyed their pizzas as a snack.
At Wings Express, students receive help with reading, math, science, technology, social skills and more. They also participate in activities to learn about nutrition.
Wings Express students stay at school from 3 to 5 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and from 1 to 3 p.m. on Fridays for activities.
There are no Wings Express activities on Wednesdays.
Students are given a snack and then divided into groups to participate in programs that best fit their needs.
About 90 students will participate in the Wings Express program.
Amanda Barnett is Wings Express director.
