Schools can help students learn, establish, and maintain patterns of nutrition and physical activity that help keep their bodies healthy. Well-planned and effectively implemented school wellness programs can help students to achieve greater mental and physical health. At Sakaw School, we are committed to promoting a healthy school environment by supporting and emphasizing student mental wellness, good nutrition, and regular physical activity.
The consumption of gum, candy, soft drinks and "junk food" is not encouraged in the school or on the playground. We encourage parents to support our efforts and not include such foods in students’ lunches.
