Healthy Eating and Exercise
Administrators, teachers, support workers, and staff have embarked on a lifestyle change. On Fridays, we have the farmer's market loaded with fresh vegetables and fruits brought to us, so we may conveniently and cheaply buy fresh produce before heading home.
Teachers have been challenged to participate in the 'Free for Five" program. After walking five miles, a free dress coupon is issued. Eating fresh fruits and vegetables and regular exercise can improve our chances of not developing high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and stress-related illnesses. If you have already been diagnosed and you are on medication for one of these conditions, eating healthy and exercising may help you lower your dose or need no medication at all.
We at CIS challenge your family to start eating healthier and exercising.
