North Park Elementary has been traveling down the Healthy Highway for the past six years. Students have been learning about Character Education, Physical Education and Fitness, and Nutrition Education while traveling down many different roads. Each time the road is changed, our outside school sign reflects this change and advertises it for the community to see. The most recent road is named Leadership Lane. At a school assembly, students were taught about the value of being good leaders, but also about the value of following good leaders. Students have been earning “Courage Cards” for showing the courage to do the right thing and being a good leader.

"Healthy Highway also supports school food service departments in their efforts to contribute to a supportive school nutrition environment. Using the Healthy Highway program in their cafeterias, food service managers in Greece, New York elementary schools have successfully turned kitchen areas into classroom 'nutrition labs' and are utilizing their expertise daily to help educate and empower students in making healthy choices."
