"Students who begin each day as healthy individuals can learn more and learn better. We believe that healthy staff can more effectively perform their assigned duties and model appropriate wellness behaviors. Students who learn and practice healthy lifestyles in their formative years may be more likely to practice them as adults.

We are committed to providing a school environment that promotes and protects children's health, well-being, and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activity."
