The four comprehensive high schools in the Lodi Unified School District began a contest this week to promote eating a nutritious breakfast. One of the schools — Lodi, Tokay, Bear Creek or McNair — will earn $3,000.

The contest is being conducted by the California Milk Processor Board, creators of the Got Milk? campaign, to promote starting the day with a nutritious breakfast and milk.

The contest kicked off with a rally Monday afternoon at McNair High School in North Stockton. The Lodi Unified school with the greatest percentage increase of in-school breakfast participation over last year will earn $3,000. The contest will end on Aug. 30.

According to Got Milk?, eating a nutritious breakfast helps students improve attention, retain information, improve test scores and increase graduation rates while reducing tardiness and absenteeism.

For more information, visit www.gotmilk.com. Follow Got Milk? on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ gotmilk? or on Twitter at @GotMilk to keep up with this year’s challenge. For a chance to win some “goodies,” show what you had for breakfast through Instagram with the hashtag #GotMilkBkfst.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
