The Healthy Me School Grant Program, part of the United Way Healthy Living Alliance, has approved 8 schools to begin funding this fall. Schools were required to submit an application outlining a plan around coordinate school health. All approved schools are eligible to receive up to $10,000 over the next 2 calendar school years to implement their plan. Schools will be trained in the CATCH program, attend group meetings to share best practices, and form a campus wellness team to carry out the program.
Healthy Me Schools currently participating:
Anderson Elementary, CISD
Sam Houston Elementary, CISD
Meador Elementary, WISD
Parmley Elementary, WISD
CC Hardy Elementary, WISD
Healthy Me schools have the opportunity to develop their own program based around the CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health) program, the most prominent health-education program in Texas schools. Developed over the last 25 years, the CATCH curriculum has been designed to help educators teach kids how to live a healthy lifestyle by eating healthy and being active. Learn more about CATCH here!
