Intent:

Nutrition Education:

  • Throughout the school year, students in grades K-8 will receive nutrition education that will involve knowledge, attitudes, skills and behaviors they need to adopt healthy and enjoyable eating habits that last a lifetime.

  • Trinity Lutheran School’s administration and teachers will provide to the students proper nutrition instructional information in the classroom. 

Physical Education:

  • Students in grades K-8 will receive physical education throughout the year. The physical education program will include physical activities and information teaching students a) to articulate that physical activity for a lifetime is vital to a healthy and well-rounded life and b) to describe healthful benefits that result from regular and appropriate participation in physical activity.

  • The school shall provide elementary students the opportunity to participate in supervised, unstructured activity time during daily recesses.

  • Physical activity opportunities will focus on individual activities in addition to competitive and non-competitive team participation. 

Review of the Wellness Policy:
