Bright, Beautiful Valentine Bouquets of Fruit! Kudos to the Parents of Madero Middle School

February 19, 2010

Kudos to the creative, talented and wellness-minded parents of Madero
Middle School
!

The parents, who serve on an academic committee at the
school, dedicated a portion of their recent meeting before Valentine's
Day to creating healthy, pretty bouquets of fresh fruit and providing a
model for integrating wellness into the classroom, into meetings, and
into the culture of a school.

We were thrilled to see that
messages of wellness had moved from the school's wellness committee to
other groups at Madero, becoming a normal part of the school day for
everyone who
is a part of the school community — from students to administrators, teachers and parent leaders. Parents in the Madero community are active in HSC's Parents United for Healthy Schools/Padres Unidos para Escuelas Saludables coalition as advocates for school wellness.

Check out the healthy fruit bouquets:
