Corryville Catholic SuperFit School Challenge

The Student Health Council at Corryville Catholic hosted a SuperFit School Challenge on Thursday, May 17 for all students.

SuperFit School Challenge is a healthy fundraiser obstacle course from Action for Healthy Kids. We hope this fundraiser will raise $4000 to support active, outdoor learning:

  1. Indoor recess equipment/games for older children (grades 5-8) since we only have access to indoor space for our recess;
  2. Classroom-based physical activity curriculum (e.g., CATCH, BrainBreaks)
  3. Experiential learning in our community through field trips to places like Cincinnati’s Outdoor Learning Center, Camp Joy and iSpace
By giving to Corryville Catholic Elementary School and SuperFit School Challenge, you’ll be able to help us give students the opportunity to learn and expand their knowledge outside of the classroom setting. Donate now. Questions?

Recess is Time to Play and Play is Serious

“It is the supreme seriousness of play that gives it its educational importance,” said Joseph Lee, the father of the playground movement. “Play seen from the inside, as the child sees it, is the most serious thing in life. … Play builds the child. … Play is thus the essential part of education.” Recess offers every child Time to Play. #recess #play #SuccessfulHealthyChildren

Schools are fundamental to fostering the whole child’s development

We count on our schools to provide healthful, safe learning environments. We expect a lot of our schools, and of our teachers…and they come to school each day facing challenges for their students that affect not only students but also our teachers…Read more about how teachers can maintain their wellness, and continue to thrive in their profession: When students are traumatized, teachers are too.
