Congratulations to our Healthy Schools! In early June, HEAL’s Healthy School Challenge completed its third year with 60% WCPS school participation.

Launched in the 2015-16 school year, HEAL’s Healthy Schools Challenge is a way to showcase a school’s commitment to the nutrition, physical activity, and overall wellness of its students.  Wellness champions in each school select certain criteria within each of these categories (nutritional, physical activity, and overall wellness) and commit to offering programs, conducting events and making certain changes within their school environment.  Each school meeting a minimum number of criteria points receive the “Healthy School” status.  Schools going above and beyond in accumulating points and creative implementation win prize money to reinvest in their wellness efforts.

CHECK OUT the 217-18 WCPS Healthy Schools   for a full list of all of the Healthy Schools.
