In May the USOE and UAHPERD (Utah Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance) have partnered to sponsor 5K and 1 Mile Fun Runs for the educational community. Encourage staff members at your school to train for this event and participate just for the health of it! Create unique t-shirts for your staff and show ‘em off at this May event.
In July the USOE and UAHPERD will partner once again to provide a two day Fitness Matters, Wellness Works professional development event in Park City. It will be committed to staff wellness and how it relates to curriculum. All participants at this event will receive a staff wellness manual that will help sustain healthy behaviors in future years.

You may sign up to receive an electronic newsletter, which will be sent four times over the course of the school year.

To get more of our educational community involved, please forward the newsletter to colleagues who will benefit from renewed healthy habits.
