Each year since 2005, students at Slauson Middle School are encouraged to exercise more, eat healthier, and spend less time in front of a screen. These are the goals of Project Healthy Schools, a childhood obesity-prevention program implemented by Slauson’s wellness team. The program’s educational lessons are currently taught in seventh-grade advisories, and all students benefit from school-wide wellness initiatives throughout the year. Keep an eye out for opportunities to participate and practice healthy habits! Please contact Slauson’s wellness champion, Heidi Busch-Binetti, with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
