Texas Ag Commissioner Sid Miller kicks off the Texas Farm Fresh Jump with Jill Live Tour
Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller announced the return of the Texas Farm Fresh Jump with Jill Live Tour for the new school year. Since 2015, these Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) special events have inspired audiences with fun lessons about healthy lifestyle choices like good nutrition and exercise. The live-action nutrition assemblies will engage students at 20 schools in Northwest Texas this September and October, as well as visitors to the State Fair of Texas on October 14. New this year, farmers market visitors in Austin, Dallas and Lubbock can also enjoy Jump with Jill performances on select days.
Jump with Jill turns nutrition education into a live concert experience complete with rock ’n’ roll music. The assemblies offer a uniquely energetic and imaginative approach to health education and, in Texas, they highlight foods from the Lone Star State. Jump with Jill materials also offer structured lessons that teachers can use to reinforce the assembly’s messages in the classroom.
The 2019 Texas Farm Fresh Jump with Jill Live Tour will visit select schools in the following school districts:
|CLYDE CONS ISD|
|NEW DEAL ISD|
|PATTON SPRINGS ISD|
|RIVER ROAD ISD|
|SAINT JO ISD|
