Chipman Takes a Chomp
- David Bolen, Charles H. Chipman Elementary
- Access to Healthy Foods, Community Involvement, Physical Activity Participation, Student Leadership
Well Chipman Elementary is a Pre-K-1st Grade School, but we still took a huge chomp towards healthy living this year. Each class was able to do daily Brain Breaks through a variety of web sites and on their schedule. Every day all kids in the entire school were provided the opportunity to participate in a healthy breakfast in the classroom and a healthy snack, usually fresh fruits and vegetables, in the afternoon. We had a Cardio Club on Wednesdays which was attended by many of the Ambassadors so they were able to take the leadership role with their peers. We were able to have a local Martial Arts studio come to a Title I evening and provide a demonstration as well as walking many of the students through some of their "kicks".
