Dear St Paul Elementary Parents,  

On October 3, 2014 the St. Paul School District will celebrate the induction of four individuals and two teams into the inaugural St. Paul Hall of Fame.  The special induction ceremony will take place during half-time of the Hall of Fame Football game vs. Central Linn High School.  There will also be a reception for inductees and their families in the Tack Room at 5:30 p.m. that will include punch, snacks and time to share memories. The purpose of the Hall of Fame is to formally recognize outstanding contributions to the heritage and tradition of the St. Paul School District.  The Hall of Fame will honor and preserve the memory of students, teachers, athletes, teams, coaches, and supporters whose achievements have brought recognition and honor to the District.  The criterion for selection not only includes achievement while in the St. Paul School District, but possibly other accomplishments in post high school activities.  Candidates are eligible through one of five classifications:  Academics, Athletics, Honorary/Military, School District Employee, School District Booster.

The 2014 inaugural inductees include standout high school and college athlete Angela (Ernst) Capps, highly decorated WWII Veteran Jim Coleman (Posthumously), long-time dedicated administrator and coach Ned Gleason (Posthumously), long-time supporter and booster Bob Hockett, the 1984 State Championship Football Team, and the 1985 Girls State Championship Basketball Team.

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 is receiving 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.
