Celebrate Healthy Lifestyles
November is Healthy Lifestyles Month!
National PTA created Healthy Lifestyles Month because research shows that a healthy child can achieve and learn more. PTAs nationwide are encouraged to plan events and activities throughout the month of November to promote health and wellness in their communities.
Healthy Lifestyles Month is a wonderful opportunity for school communities to demonstrate their commitment to ensuring that all students show up each day healthy and ready to learn. Local PTAs participate by conducting programs and events that promote health education, physical activity and parental involvement. This can be something as small as featuring an article in their newsletter or as big as organizing a 5K walk. PTAs also encourage families to increase their physical activity, eat fresh fruits and vegetables, participate in their community's physical activity programs and promote lifelong healthy behaviors.
National PTA's Healthy Lifestyles Month has encouraged PTAs across the country to get creative and develop clever initiatives that make healthy living fun. What will your PTA do to celebrate?
