White Rock Elementary is a Healthy Zone School and is committed to keeping our students, staff and families active and engaged in healthy behavior. Planned events and activities throughout the school year allow WRE to be a leading example of how other schools in our community can promote wellness.
What is a Healthy Zone School?
Schools that are part of the Healthy Zone program will receive guidance from The Cooper Institute® and United Way of Metropolitan Dallas to implement activities and health promotions. Schools will also receive these incentives:
- Media attention and recognition
- Healthy Zone Signage
- FitnessGram® license and web hosting
- $1500 in funding for Physical Education equipment and/or other PE, health, or nutrition related materials
- $1500 in funding for activity promotions per year
Healthy Zone Events will be posted on the PTA website and Facebook page when they are approaching, so be on the lookout!
