Unique School Spaces Offer Joy, Freedom, and Health to Students & Community
Whitaker Elementary School is truly a space that benefits everyone thanks to parent and community input, volunteering, and work that helped build a “Be Hive” to transform students’ social emotional health.
The dedicated Fitness & Nutrition Teacher at YES Prep Brays Oaks is transforming students’ lives by advocating for health initiatives and introducing new equipment and resources thanks to a Game On grant.
North Shore Elementary School had the space for kids to play outside but not the activities to engage them. With a Parents for Healthy Kids grant, they were able to purchase equipment to get students moving and learning.

Thanks to a school Wellness Team that includes passionate parents, ISANA Cardinal Academy used grant funds to not only increase nutrition and physical activity opportunities, but to transform students’ and parents’ attitudes toward healthy behaviors.
