3rd Annual Healthier Schools Workshop (2015)

Thank you to all who attended the 3rd Annual Healthier Schools workshop!

There were 27 district teams in attendance and the energy in the room was contagious. What a great day! The message that was woven throughout the day and the reason we all came together is healthy students are better learners!

We shared data about health and academic achievement to help you make the case for a healthier school, success stories from schools around the state, tools and resources to get you get started and successful strategies to take back to your school.

Below you will find all of the materials shared throughout the day. And stay tuned for ways to stay engaged going forward!
