Sweet potato skit Characters: Reporter Harry Potter Quidditch team (3?) Fred the Gecko Student Props: Brooms/quiditch props Harry potter costume Sweet potato Gecko costume Bugget Cooked sweet potato Reporter: And now the news. Next Wednesday Green Street School Students will be taste testing maple-glazed sweet potatoes in every classroom. The sweet potatoes they will taste were grown locally just on Picadilly Farm in Winchester New Hampshire. This is part of the Farm to School Program which is taking off all across the country. School Cafeterias are buying their vegetables from local farmers so kids get the freshest food possible. Plus buying locally helps keep our environment clean and keep our beautiful Vermont farms in business. Kids can help by buying lunch on the days there are local offerings. And we’ll be back after this commercial break (Kids playing quidditch on Broom sticks) (Harry potter blows whistle, pauses and walks over to speak to audience) Harry Potter: You know, after a long day of playing quidditch and practicing my wizardry skills, I know I need to eat a nutritious meal. And sweet potatoes are just the right thing! Not only are they delicious, but they are cfull of all the things you need to stay healthy and fit. They are high in potassium, calcium, and vitamin A and vitamin C. Calcium is good for your bones and Vitamin A helps your eyes. You’ve got to be quick with your eyes to catch those quidditch balls coming by! And, here’s a bit of trivia for you- Did you know your body needs vitamin A and C to produce sebum, an oily substance secreted by your hair follicles that is the body’s natural hair conditioner? All you WACKY HAIR folks out there should make sure you eat your sweet potatoes! Student (walking up to Harry) Are sweet potatoes good for muggles? Harry Potter: Of course! Sweet Potatoes will enhance ANYONE’s special powers. (Fred- school mascot appears) Fred: What about geckos? Harry Potter: Even Geckos! Fred, want to try some maple glazed sweet potatos? Fred the Gecko: NO… I don’t think I’ll like it. I only like bugs. Harry Potter: If you’ve never tried it, how do you know- maybe you’ll love it! Remember, life is all about taking risks. We wizards learn that early! Tasting new foods is one great way to practice BRAVERY! You don’t have to like it, just try it! Fred the Gecko: Well okay… (Nibbles some of the sweet potato) Hey this is YUMMY! Harry Potter: (turning to audience): What did I tell you? (Turns back to Fred) This is for being such a brave gecko! (Hands Fred a bugget.) Sweet Potatoes are really worth it! (holds up sweet potato and looks at audience) Eat Sweet Potatoes. Good for Muggles, Wizards, Wacky Hair AND Geckos! (Harry, Fred, Student, Quiditch team all smile and gives a thumbs up) Reporter: And now back to the news: It seems at Green Street School, students have been taking Harry’s advice. In some classrooms during our last taste test in December, every single student tried the roasted root taste test! Talk about BRAVERY! Next Wednesday, students will be taste testing local sweet potatoes and have a chance to be BRAVE again! Tune in next week to GSS News to find out how many classes get high scores for bravery during the sweet potato taste test. Thanks for watching GSS News. News and Information for a Better World.
