Growing Healthy in the Grove

Last year we were fortunate to receive a 3 year $100,000 grant from the Bower Foundation to help our school become healthier.  Our nation is addressing health issues in schools to help combat rising health care costs.  We feel this grant has given us the opportunity to be leaders in positive change.  Just a few of the benefits so far are:

      Walk Around the World a program to increase physical fitness in students and staff

      A full-time school nurse

      An equipped sick room

      An EPSDT nurse and clinic

      Our first school-wide Health Fair

      Connections with other agencies to provide better health-care for our community

      A hydration program that allows students to have water throughout the day to increase learning
