McDonald County students petition for the return of strawberry milk

McDONALD COUNTY, Mo. — Some local students take political action to get their strawberry milk back at lunchtime.

The McDonald County R-1 School District had stopped offering it, but students weren’t happy.

So, some 4th graders let the district know by writing a petition to bring it back. And it worked!

On Wednesday, September 29, 2021, the school’s delivery of milk included strawberry.

The 4th grade class also got a reward of strawberry milk and cookies for their efforts. You can hear more from some of those students below.
