PAL is grateful for the opportunity to work in partnership with Spartanburg County schools to ensure that our community has healthy and active children. We use the Alliance for a Healthier Generation's School Wellness Toolkit. The toolkit helps schools look at what they are already doing to encourage health and provides short, medium, and long term options for next steps.
Our current 2015-16 Healthy Schools Project Schools are: OP Earle Elementary, Boiling Springs Intermediate, Cowpens Elementary, the South Carolina School for the Deaf and Blind, and the Spartanburg Day School!
PAL worked with three schools to pilot efforts to create the healthiest school environments possible. The schools include Hendrix IB World School, Holly Springs Motlow Elementary, and Westview Elementary. The 2014-15 schools included New Prospect Elementary, Oakland Elementary, Lone Oak Elementary, and Jesse Boyd Elementary.
