Dear parents:

Our first “Fitness Friday” was a great success and students were actively engaged in a walking the track activity. This activity has been added once a month to help our school work toward the silver award in the national healthier generation schools program. Watch for another fitness Friday announcement in the weeks ahead. Special thanks to Kristi Stoltenberg our awesome kindergarten teacher for her work in getting the Friday activity event off the ground. Research shows that our students will perform better in school if they have a regular exercise program that they participate in. Parents can help out at home by keeping your children active with evening walks, shooting hoops in the driveway or passing a football in the backyard. These are great memories for kids and fun for everyone involved. The district has a teacher workday scheduled for Friday October 31st so remember no school for students that day. Please have a safe and enjoyable Halloween and remember that next week students will be catching the bus and walking to school in the early daylight hours. Dress them in light colors and provide reflective safety devices or a light when it is still dark.

Oregon Schools

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.

2014 National Healthy Schools Award Recipients

Every year we hold our annual Alliance for a Healthier Generation Leaders Summit to celebrate schools around the nation that have met our Healthy Schools Program benchmarks for creating healthy changes.

These are those award winning schools in your state that we are so proud to honor.
