Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK) has funded fourteen schools within North Carolina with grant funding to improve physical activity and nutrition education initiatives, with projects such as school gardens, gaga ball pits, water bottle filling stations and more planned for the 2019-2020 School Year! See the list of funded schools here: Funded Schools. These projects are being led by school nurses, administrators, PE teachers and parents, with the intent to improve the school wellness environment. Like these schools, spend just three minutes finding out if your school meets the basic best practices for school health by taking our School Health Survey. This brief survey will show you if your school is on the right track to becoming a healthy school that helps students thrive by addressing the needs of the whole child. AFHK’s School Health Survey can help your school: explore and choose a few Game On activities to implement during the school year based on areas identified for improvement, identify resources to help you advocate for change and start your school health journey, and take the next step in applying for a grant! This survey can help guide your grant project proposal and will actually be the first requirement for your grant application.
