The Whole Child: Supporting the Physical Health and Well-Being of Students


In this week’s episode of the Whole Child, learn about some of the unique approaches that APS has implemented to promote the physical health and well-being of students. At Taylor Elementary, see how the farm-to-school program brings local produce directly to the cafeteria and helps students sample the nutritious options available on the lunch menu. At the Career Center, take a look at how PEP students are being supported as they participate in internships that prepare them socially and emotionally for transition into the workplace. Finally, explore the Adaptive Physical Education program at Washington-Lee, where students are getting physically fit through individual coaching and support from their teachers.
