Creating a healthy environment for a child in school reaches far beyond the cafeteria and PE classroom. CATCH provides a classroom health & nutrition curriculum for each grade level that focuses on nutrition and physical activity. Through the CATCH Coordination Kit, CATCH also encourages teachers to declare their classrooms “healthy zones,” asking parents and students to provide healthy, GO snacks. The “healthy zone” also applies to teachers as CATCH encourages teachers to role model healthy behaviors in front of the students.
CATCH’s Coordination Kits provide helpful tips and resources for teachers to use to create this environment of health, including letters home in both Spanish and English, classroom posters, and more.
