Description

Just a reminder that we still need YOUR input into the Healthy Classroom Checklist! There is a Google Doc that is a VERY rough draft, so we are primarily interested in just getting content right now. I’ll be sending updates in the next couple of weeks regarding the Refrigerator Curriculum and the Healthy Schools Professional Development Series as well, so don’t get too tired of hearing from me! ☺

Items in red are areas in which we need our partners/stakeholders assistance! We encourage your participation so that we can ensure a comprehensive and beneficial product.

Healthy Classroom Checklist

· Overview: The Healthy Classroom Checklist target audience is for classroom teachers that want to ensure they are providing a healthy environment for students in their classroom. The idea came from the Smarter Lunchroom Self-Assessment (attached for reference) that cafeterias use as part of the Healthier US Challenge. We hope that this checklist will not only be a self-assessment, but can be potentially used as part of the process to become recognized by ArCOP as a Healthy Classroom. The items on the checklist will also have corresponding resources, tools, and professional development opportunities for teachers. We hope to also tailor this by age group, but for now, we ask that you throw ideas out and we can organize them by age group when we get farther along in the process.

· Next Steps: We need your input! Please check out the UPDATED Google Doc link to access the very rough draft template and add items that you believe align with your organization’s mission to create a healthy classroom environment. Please keep in mind that this is targeted towards CLASSROOM TEACHERS who are creating/want to create a healthy classroom environment.

Our next meeting will be November 16th, from 1:30- 2:30 via Zoom. Future meetings will be held via Zoom. We hope that this will allow for increased participation from community members and schools in the workgroup that are not located in central Arkansas.
