New Manchester Elementary School Hosts Happy Families Expo

kindergartnerBlaze HaseldenjumpsropeduringwellnessfestivalNew Manchester Elementary School hosted an activity packed expo this month encouraging parents and students to embrace new healthy habits. Principal Alesia Stanley introduced the “Healthy Families Happy Families” event to encourage families to prioritize healthy eating, healthy living and healthy habits.

Each family began the event with a  paper “Passport to Health,” introducing them to goals such as Healthy Eating, Getting Moving, Healthy Minds and Healthy Bodies.  Douglas County School Nutrition taught families how to create healthy, nutritious snacks during the Healthy Eating component of the expo. Chef Scott Lamphere from Gordon Food service created healthy snacks showing  students that eating healthy is not just wise, but also fun.

Throughout the Getting Moving component, families learned from school physical education instructors about easy, inexpensive ways to keep families active. In the Healthy Minds Unit, families learned how to think creatively and reduce stress. The final passport destination, Healthy Bodies and Healthy Families,  taught everyone how to use the new knowledge to develop a healthy lifestyle. West Georgia Technical College CNA students provided blood pressure screenings, while additional medical professionals offered medical advice to students and families.

Principal Stanley says the event was a tremendous success: “Healthy Families Happy Families showed our students and their families that healthy living is a family affair. We are so proud we have been able to  equip everyone with tools they need to live happy, healthy lives.”
