School Initiatives 

Healthy Schools
Healthy Schools is a collaborative group that consists of teachers, students and community members coming together to improve and increase healthy living and promote healthy choices in the lives of students and their families.  The Healthy Schools campaign develops a safe, clean and healthy environment for all.  Further, this school committee pledges to increase physical activity, healthy food choices, and increases awareness in creating a safe, happy and welcoming school setting.  By having all facets of the school incorporated and involved (staff, students, and the community itself), the Healthy Schools premise aims to and is determined to be successful in attaining their health-oriented goals.
