(Kingfisher, OK) Tonight I’m staying at the birthplace of Sam Walton, founder of Walmart! Tomorrow morning I will meet with Sheila Redwine and several of Kingfisher Public Schools’ physical education teachers regarding their recently awarded Carol M. White PEP Grant. More pictures to follow….
Kingfisher Public School (OK) – $696,724
Led by Kingfisher School District, the SNEAKERS Project (“Sensible, Nutritious Eating as Kids Exercise Regularly and Successfully”) is a community partnership involving the Kingfisher County Health Department, Kingfisher’s Ministerial Alliance, a medical office, regional hospital, Child Nutrition Department and Mayor’s Office.
The District will update and unify their physical education (PE) curriculum using the SPARK-PE curriculum, as well as integrate personal assessment monitoring and tracking through the use of Great Activities Publishing Company’s Virtual PE Administrator. The district will work with their community health partners to create and sustain a model of tracking students’ fitness levels, body mass index (BMI), and other key obesity prevention behaviors through the duration of the project.
