Initiatives to Promote Healthy Eating & Fitness
We have established a school healthy zone committee.
We offer a YMCA program after school.
We participated in last year's Project A.C.E.S day with the Great Milford Walkout (all students/faculty engaged in a school-wide walk for 45 minutes. Parents were invited). We did another Walkout this past Oct 5th for International walk to school day. We plan to continue this in the future - two walkouts per year.
Last year we had healthy tips of the day during morning announcements in the spring and plan to continue that this year.
We offer healthy snacks at school dances - juice, pretzels, carrot sticks
We have a bulletin board in the cafeteria to help promote nutrition and physical activity (changed periodically with different themes, current news, etc).
During designated times during the day, students are allowed to eat a healthy snack. Healthy snacks can be purchased in the cafeteria before homeroom.
We are planning a mini-health fair for some time in January or February. We are planning for an informative and interactive event.
