Students Present Health Week


Health week took place during the week of February 10-14, but some people may have already forgotten what it was all about. Nathan Oakley said it was about “health.” Zach Hannah said “Health week was meant to raise our awareness of unhealthy diets and lifestyles.” They are both right. Health week was about that and more.

The students that presented for health week were from the 11:10 health class taught by Mrs. Butler. They presented all week but Thursday, which is when Daniel Greene and I gave our Appalachian Trail picture presentation.

Mrs. Butler focused the week-long program on the acronym C.R.E.A.T.I.O.N. It stands for Choice, Rest, Environment, Activity, Trust, Interpersonal relationships, Outlook, Nutrition.

Two groups of three to four students delivered a prevention focusing on one of the letters per group per day. The second group to present was my group, and our letter was N for nutrition. We had students from each class come up and have a healthy eating contest of fruits and veggies. We then gave a short talk about how good nutrition is important. Other groups did skits or talked about their subject, stressing the importance of healthy living.

In the end, health week provided several examples of how to live healthfully and make good choices.
