KOEPSELL HEALTHY SCHOOL GROUP
Koepsell Health Team Super Heroes
Koepsell Elementary has a fourth/fifth grade Student Health Team. Ms. Lefchick (fourth grade teacher) and Julia Huck (RN BSN) lead biweekly meetings. One thing we did was a healthy food tasting and instant recess for the whole school on the last day before Christmas Break. We go into the classrooms for an instant recess once a week and we are planning more healthy food tastings. Students have met with our Food Service Director to discuss and learn about how the food is chosen and what might we be able to do to make some possible changes. We are also involved in Fuel Up to Play 60. This a website with activities we can do to earn points and prizes for our school. We also have earned grants that have been used for indoor recess activities and will be used for posters to decorate the cafe' as well as other play equipment for the students. We know that good nutrition and exercise are the makings of Super Heroes.
