Greetings and Happy Holidays,
During this last week leading up to the winter break I would like to thank our parents for the support and encouragement you provide to your children and our school each day. I speak for the entire staff when I share our heartfelt wish for you to have a wonderful time over the break with your family and friends. We hope that those of you who travel do so safely and that everyone returns to school in January refreshed and ready to work hard toward the acquisition of new knowledge.
Please encourage your children to read daily over the break. Look on the internet for great brain games to play with children while traveling and keep their minds active in as many ways as you can.
Talk to your children about the projects they are doing in school and if they plan to bring several items home this week you may want to plan to pick them up to help ease the burden of transporting these items on the bus.
Have a safe holiday and a Happy New Year!
Joseph M. Wehrli

Oregon is one of the nation’s healthiest states when it comes to childhood obesity. Currently 26.4 percent of children ages 10-17 in Oregon are considered overweight or obese. While this is better than all but a handful of states, it is still too high for the children of Oregon. To address the issue, more than 340 schools have joined the Alliance for a Healthier Generation’s Healthy Schools Program and are taking advantage of tools and resources available at no cost to help schools create a wellness council, start staff wellness programs, offer healthier foods and more physical activities.
The Healthy Schools Program recognizes that all schools are unique and there is no one size fits all approach when it comes to school health. As part of the Healthy Schools Program, every school creates an action plan that will work for their community. Many schools in Oregon have decided to work on employee wellness and 75 percent of participating schools have made improvements in this area. These gains, noted Oregon Relationship Program Manager Maricela Urzua, were achieved in part through a focus on staff employee wellness by Governor Kitzhaber.
In recognition of their efforts, 58 National Healthy Schools Awards have been presented to Oregon schools. This year St. Paul Elementary is the only Oregon school that received the National Healthy School Bronze Award. Each recognized school has distinguished itself with healthy eating and physical activity programs and policies that meet or exceed stringent standards set by the Alliance’s Healthy Schools Program. A representatives from the award-winning school will attend the annual Leaders Summit in Washington, D.C.
