ROSELLE, NJ - Three Roselle schools were recently named to the 2017 list of “America’s Healthiest Schools.”
The list, published by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, identified 323 of the nation’s healthiest schools based on the school’s ability to meet a rigorous set of criteria – including serving healthier meals and snacks, getting students moving more, offering high-quality physical and health education, and empowering school leaders to become healthy role models.
Roselle schools recognized as “America’s Healthiest Schools” include:
· Harrison Elementary School
· Kindergarten Success Academy
· Washington Elementary School
The three schools were the only recognized schools in the state of New Jersey and all three received the second-highest level of recognition—the National Healthy Schools SILVER Award.
"Healthy bodies means healthy minds, said Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Richard Corbett. “I am very proud of the accomplishments at KSA, Harrison and Washington Elementary Schools. All Roselle schools will continue to work with parents to ensure all our students experience a healthy lifestyle. Ultimately, it's about providing the best educational experience for our students."
