Healthy Lifestyles

Families whose members live a healthy lifestyle are fit, energetic, and have a reduced risk of disease.  Following a plan for healthy living can help reduce stress and its effects.  People who work to stay fit and healthy and can expect to live a longer and more comfortable life.  A plan for a healthy lifestyle includes making good nutritional choices, exercising daily, and getting adequate sleep. Pleasanton ISD believes that students who have these three things as part of their daily and weekly routines have advantages as students.  The Pleasanton ISD School Health Advisory Council has adopted a coordinated school health philosophy that is designed to support wellness components for the whole student.  Helping students grow a healthy mind and body is valuable now and will continue to be valuable as they grow into adulthood.  This group meets regularly to review and plan activities for students, faculty, and community.
