Young people who engage in healthy activities get better grades and feel better about themselves. Schools can play a critical role in helping establish these healthy behaviors that lead to academic - and lifelong - success. That's what School Health Connection™ was all about.
School Health Connection™ was designed to encourage healthy lifestyles in students, teachers and families. It supported schools for a full academic year by providing health-education tools and resources, including $10,000 in grant money, consulting physicians, online learning resources, teacher trainings and community events.
Studies show that young people who participate in healthy activities get better grades and are more successful in school. Knowing that schools play a critical role in helping young people establish healthy behaviors that lead to academic - and lifelong - success, School Health Connection™ offered schools the tools to improve health education and academic achievement in all students.
Any school staff and teachers can now access Health Powered Kids™. The online learning tools, developed by Allina Health experts, provide engaging lessons on activity, nutrition and mind-body balance. The lessons can stand alone or be integrated into existing lesson plans. They can be used in the classroom or for after-school programs.
Healthful habits for the whole family
