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