Goal: To provide each student with the knowledge, skills, confidence and motivation to engage in a healthy active lifestyle and to create a supportive environment that is conducive to enjoyable life long physical activity opportunities for students, families, staff and community.

Opportunities for school staff to improve their health status through activities such as health assessments, health education and health-related fitness activities. These opportunities encourage school staff to pursue a healthy lifestyle that contributes to their improved health status, improved morale, and a greater personal commitment to the school's overall coordinated health program. This personal commitment often transfers into greater commitment to the health of students and creates positive role modeling. Health promotion activities have improved productivity, decreased absenteeism, and reduce insurance cost.
