Health Team 4

Health Team 4 is a student group led by a small group of teachers with the mission to promote health and well-being throughout the school. Health team 4, a group of 4th graders, are student leaders who foster healthy living by providing several learning opportunities throughout the school. Students are teaching and modeling brain breaks within the classroom and are promoting active play activities during recess. The team targets not only the physical health of students but the social and emotional piece as well.

 

Health Team 4 helps implement kindness campaigns and calming activities to promote overall well being of the school. The team also supports our community 5k/1 mile run “Rock Slide” and helps promote the American Heart Association “Jump Rope for Heart” event. Programs like Health Team 4 empower students to take action so that students are happy and healthy. Research indicates that physical activity can improve academic achievement. We believe that healthy students really are better students!
