Healthy activities for students and staff were abundant at the Winter Park 9th Grade center during the 2011-12 school year.
The Healthy School Team (HST) hosted a breakfast promotion, providing a healthy breakfast to a winning class that answered questions about healthy breakfasts correctly. The menus included eggs, yogurt parfaits with granola and fresh fruit, whole grain English muffins, juice and fresh fruit.
More healthy food options were available during a Healthy Food Pot Luck meal. It was open to all staff members and the team provided recipes and brought food for the staff to taste. A contest was held for the best healthy recipe, and recipes were copied and handed out.
Faculty and staff members had a chance to participate in Zumba classes during the school year, and they were invited to the “Keep Working Out Wildcats!” program this summer. Exercise sessions are being held in the 9th Grade Center Weight Room and the pool on the main Winter Park High School campus.
