The Student Health Action Committee has been established again for the year. All interested junior students were invited and each primary class chose representatives. We meet monthly on Tuesdays at lunch and talk health and how to promote healthy lifestyle choices at Howard.
SHAC is running Fresh Fruit Fridays on a monthly basis. All funds will be donated to Erica’s Wish.
On Wednesday, February 26th Howard will host a Winter Walk to School Day. All students who walk to school will check in with a SHAC Special Events coordinator to get a special Winter Walk to School sticker. We will announce the class that has the highest percentage of participation.
On Thursday, March 6th Howard will be participating in the Great Big Crunch at 2:00pm. All students will meet in the yard and at the same time we’ll crunch into a tasty apple and listen to the crunch. The Great Big Crunch is an event to :
- promote, celebrate and enjoy healthy snacking
- highlight availability of local produce all year round
- use fruits and vegetables as the centerpiece for activities on cooking and tasting, nutrition, soil and composting, sustainability, community development and more!
- celebrate Nutrition Month!
