Health is Academic Campaign Helps PTAs Plan for Next Year

Did you know health is an academic issue? It is! Healthy kids are happier, more successful students. Health is Academic is NCPTA’s campaign to describe the connection between health and learning, and to share that with PTAs and schools across North Carolina. This summer, we’ll be sharing your stories about how healthier schools are helping every child in our emails and on Facebook.

Get ideas for how your PTA can get involved in each of the 10 components of the Whole School, Whole Child, Whole Community model! Summer is a great time to plan for next year and to think about how your PTA is going to make every child healthy, every child whole, and every child successful.
