Action for Healthy Kids is part of the movement to make schools healthier places for kids. That’s why we want your school to participate in the fourth annual Every Kid Healthy Week celebration, April 25-29, 2016. Whether just starting out or celebrating all your school’s health and wellness accomplishments, join the movement by hosting and registering your Every Kid Healthy Week event. Examples of events that have taken place in the past include: hosting a healthy food taste test, inviting local gym or fitness trainer to lead a family Zumba or yoga fitness class, planting a school garden, inviting parents and students to participate in a school walk-a-thon. Need additional inspiration? Find ideas and resources at EveryKidHealthyWeek.org.
Schools can celebrate anytime in the month of April. We are giving out school level grants with Washington funds ranging from $250-$500 to assist schools with hosting a celebration. Any school wellness champion can lead this (parents, students, wellness council, nurse, PE teacher, classroom teacher, principal, FSD, etc.). Schools can email Nitasha Sharma, WA State Coordinator, at NSharma@actionforhealthykids.org with the attached application by March 20th to apply for one of these grants or with questions regarding Every Kid Healthy Week events.
