Classroom Celebrations

Alta Vista is a member of the Alliance for a Healthier Generation's Healthy Schools Program, an initiative that is helping us make our school a healthier place and a Blue Zones School. Creating a healthy school for our students is important because we know that healthy students are better learners. One of our wellness goals is to create new celebration traditions at our school, and we are asking for your help!

Between holidays and birthday celebrations, the number of high fat, sugary foods and beverages a student consumes during the school year can add up quickly. We are asking that our school celebrates with using food, like doing a fun physical activity or project, or only including healthy foods and beverages during birthdays, holidays or school-wide celebrations. 

There are many fun ways to celebrate without food. Click here for some suggestions or share your own creative ideas with us!

Thank you for helping us create a healthier place for your child to learn.
