We recognize that healthy communities will require innovative collaboration with diverse organizations, including the more than 500 public and private schools in our area. Additionally, at Atlantic Health System we know that health and health behaviors start early in life – by partnering with schools and providing students with the tools they need to live healthy lives while they are young, we can indeed fulfill our vision.
Atlantic Health System has had a long-standing relationship with local schools, as well as a history of offering a wide variety of educational services and events. This new initiative is designed to be a partnership program that allows us to build longer-term, more comprehensive relationships with area schools, and share best practices among schools using a network approach. Recognizing that there are numerous pieces of the “school health” puzzle – from nutrition to administration, health education to afterschool programming – the Atlantic Healthy Schools initiative will be a forum for enhanced collaboration. We’ll give schools one-stop-access to a menu of resources and programs designed to help create healthier schools. These will include services that focus on capacity building of school staff in terms of health and health promotion, as well as tools and procedures to create healthier school contexts.
The Atlantic Healthy Schools initiative will help solidify and mobilize the health initiatives already going on at your school. As a member school, your school will be given priority access to classroom presentations, parent programs, professional development workshops and online resources.
There is no start-up fee or annual fee associated with being a member of Atlantic Healthy Schools.
Programs should be requested at least 2 months in advance. All efforts will be made to honor requests in a timely manner.
Only one program can be requested for each grade within a school during that school year.
If you would like information about whether or not Atlantic Healthy Schools can accommodate a specific program request, or you would like to make a suggestion about a particular program that you think would be helpful for Atlantic Healthy Schools to develop, you can send an email with your request/suggestion.
