Sage Canyon Elementary and Sage Canyon PTA celebrated Healthy Choices Day on Wednesday, February 29th.  It was a huge hit with the students and teachers alike!

Sage Canyon PTA’s mission statement reads: “…to promote the social, emotional and educational development of our students and to encourage parent volunteerism and community involvement in our school.”

On February 29th, Sage Canyon PTA put their mission into action by sponsoring and partnering with Jimbo’s…Naturally! to promote health and community involvement.  Jimbo’s…Naturally! graciously supplied apples for the students and had Chef Mike come to the school to teach the kids how to make a healthy recipe.  At the end of the day, each student received a copy of the recipe and a coupon to Jimbo’s…Naturally!

Healthy Choices Dayis an opportunity to educate kids about the importance of exercise, making healthy food choices, practicing good dental health, and being sun smart.  Sage Canyon PTA had many fun activities planned that day and included:
