We are proud to be a HEAL school!HEAL stands for Healthy Eating and Active Living. This curriculum of fitness, nutrition, and 'motor skills in motion' is presented to all 4th graders during their PE time throughout this school year. By participating in HEAL Alabama program, students learn to play and exercise in their “healthy heart zone." Heart rate monitors are used to measure students’ efforts so that no one will over exert or under exert during activity. Each month (September – May), a HEAL calendar is sent home with the students which provides healthy recipes, nutrition, and exercise advice for the entire family. On occasion, the PE teachers will send papers, “Homeplay”, for students to work on and return to the PE teachers. To learn more, visit https://healalabama.org/.
