The Penn-Harris-Madison Board of School Trustees recognizes that good nutrition and regular physical activity affect the health and well being of the Corporation’s students. Research suggests that there is a positive correlation between a student’s health and well-being and his/her ability to learn. Schools play an important role in the developmental process by which students establish their health and nutrition habits by providing nutritious meals and snacks through school meal programs, by supporting the development of good eating habits, and by promoting increased physical activity both in and out of school.
