In classrooms across the country, teachers are making a difference for kids’ health. Now, our friends at Healthy Schools Campaign (HSC) are gathering innovative strategies, fun ideas and practical tips to help teachers create a culture of wellness in their classrooms. To do this, they need your help!
Share your ideas. Do you have a favorite book you read to your class that includes messages about food and fitness? Have you found a few minutes during the day for a physical activity break? Do your celebrations focus on games rather than junk food? Please take a moment to share your ideas and experiences!
Be part of the movement. Across the nation, from the White House to the school yard, we’re seeing a movement to help kids live healthy lives. By sharing your ideas, you’ll provide invaluable guidance to other teachers and be a leader in promoting wellness.
Win prizes. When you share your idea, you’ll be entered in a raffle to win fabulous prizes for your classroom, including kits from The OrganWise Guys, Skillastics and School Health Corp.
Earn recognition. HSC will feature selected ideas in several publications and share them with teachers nationwide. If your idea is used, you will be recognized in HSC’s communications and in any published materials that include your ideas.
