Champaign-Urbana Public Health District Helps the Students of Leal Elementary School "CATCH" the Spirit of Good Health
Sustainable Events Promote Active Living
Champaign, IL - Leal Elementary School has partnered with the Champaign-Urbana Public Health District (CUPHD) to implement a Coordinated Approach To Child Health (CATCH). CATCH is a multi-component initiative that promotes healthy behaviors in students and gives them the opportunity to practice them. CATCH emphasizes the need for a healthy lifestyle to improve both living and learning. CATCH has four core components - nutrition, physical activity, health education and family/community involvement. All of the teachers at Leal completed a full-day training to implement CATCH over the summer, and they are holding a kick-off this Friday to introduce CATCH to their families.
