Scott Primary receives grant from Action for Healthy Kids
Scott Primary School is a proud recipient of a $1,000 Parents for Healthy Kids grant made possible through Action for Healthy Kids® (AFHK) and funding from ALDI. The grant will help expand student access to physical activity and healthy foods in school, improve knowledge and behaviors around physical activity and healthy eating, and provide funding and support to parent groups as they work to engage parents and families in these efforts both at school and at home.

Scott Primary will use its grant to purchase additional alternative seating options for the new building. The new seating will provide students with flexible seating options to give them the choice to sit, stand or kneel in the most comfortable position for them to learn in any classroom.

“We recognize the impact of physical activity and good nutrition on our students’ health and learning, as well as the power of parents to help implement successful school programs. We are excited to engage parents and create an even healthier school environment with the funding and resources from Action for Healthy Kids and ALDI,” said Cindy Foht, Scott Primary principal. 

Scott Primary is one of 150 schools receiving an ALDI-funded grant along with technical support from AFHK to implement its grant in the 2018-2019 school year.
