Promoting Healthy Lifestyles in Schools, at Home, and in the Community

CATCH stands for Coordinated Approach To Child Health. CATCH is a program that works to promote a healthy school environment with the help of the school, community, and family.
There are 4 main components of the CATCH program. These include classroom curriculum, physical education, eating smart (cafeteria), and family programs/events.
This week we will begin our kick-off to CATCH! The students will begin lessons from the CATCH curriculum as well as participate in a school-wide fitness activity. In addition students are offered a variety of healthy, nutritious food options in the cafeteria each day.
Please watch our monthly newsletters for updates on the CATCH program and events that we will be offering throughout the year. You are also encouraged to talk with your child at home about the key ideas they are learning at school about being healthy.
