  Healthy Living

 

AT SEMS-East the staff and faculty recognize that a healthier lifestyle will contribute to better learning and a lifelong decreased risk in developing chronic illness.   New statements from the Centers for Disease Control state that America's children are at risk for childhood obesity, which in turn puts them at risk for heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic conditions. The health services department of South Eastern School District is implementing programs to increase a "healthy" awareness in our students.

During the school year, students will be learning about health lifestyle choinces in health and wellness, participating in physical education classes, and will have the opportunity to hear the nurse discuss the importance of healthy choices in the health and wellness classes.   Bulletin boards and posters are located in the health room and selected class rooms that remind students to eat fruits and vegetables, get plenty of exercise, and the importance of following the Food Pyramid.  Also, throughout the school year, the nurse will visit the cafeteria, encouraging students to include fruits and vegetables in their lunch.
