Throughout the spring and summer ahead there are a variety of activities available for students and families.  As your local ISD, the School Wellness Department is happy to assist you in finding opportunities that meet your students' and family's needs.  This web page may have some ideas you can take advantage of or ask your child's teacher or campus counselor for recommendations and if they don't have something in mind off hand, they will get back to you!

Are you ready to plan for summer fun with some healthy activities?  The American Diabetes Association, in collaboration with the Westside YMCA and the Texas Diabetes Institute, will be hosting their Fourth annual Project Power (formally known as Camp PowerUp).  The Project Power Camp is a great blend of fun activities and wellness education to help them learn about diabetes and diabetes prevention.  Family education will be also available for full family engagement.

 

Project Power is a FREE healthy lifestyle/diabetes prevention program (est. value $700) open to children ages 10-14 yrs, with a health care provider’s referral.

 

During the week-long Camp, 50 campers and their families will get to enjoy:

  • health/nutrition education;
  • indoor and outdoor fun activities;
  • field trips to the Witte Museum and the University of Incarnate Word’s cooking lab;
  • parent health education sessions; and
  • a family celebration / camper award night

 

Breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be provided, as well as health information and prizes.  If you know of health care providers who work with children and their families to promote a healthy weight, please share this opportunity!
