Healthy Futures Challenge

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I am pleased to announce our school will be participating in the Healthy Futures Challenge this year! The contest will run for three months, February, March and April. In addition to students winning prizes, our school can win up to a $600 grant for equipment or educational materials that support the mission of developing the habit of daily physical activity. The top three schools with the highest percentage of participation will then be awarded grants.
How does your child participate in Healthy Futures? With your assistance, your child records physical activity on the Healthy Futures Activity Log (attached) for a consecutive 4-week period. The goal is a minimum of 30 minutes of physical activity with increased heart rate three times a week for four consecutive weeks outside of the physical education classroom. Students turn in completed logs to their teacher with your signature in exchange for exciting prizes, including the chance to win a grand prize sports package of their choice, worth up to $300.

Incentives. In addition to being happier and healthier, students are rewarded for participating in Healthy Futures. The contest will run for the months of February, March and April. In exchange for turning in a completed log, students will receive the following prizes:
Log 1: Reflective Wristband
Log 2: Hyper Light Ball
Log 3: Stop Watch
They will also be eligible for the monthly drawing.

This is a wonderful program that is sure to benefit your child and our school. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or our school nurse, Laura Peek.
