ISH CHI Health Champions Service Learning Projects 2014

ISH CHI Health Champions Service Learning Projects 2014

We are so proud of our 2014 Health Champions. Since January, 95 students in grades 1-5 have been meeting weekly to prepare healthy recipes, maintain their school gardens, and learn fun fitness activities.

Not only did they build important cooking, gardening, and fitness skills that will help them lead a healthy lifestyle, they shared their learning with others through their Service Learning Projects!

Service Learning Projects are student-led initiatives to share what they learned with the larger community. The ISH is committed to service learning because students are more passionate about and proud of their accomplishments when they can share it, and the community benefits from the work students do in class.

Check out the great projects in 2014:
