During the final few weeks of school, students will be participating in a run-a-thon during PE class.  Pre-K as well as 3rd and 4th graders will have a set amount of time to run/walk outside.  Classes will compete to see which group can run the most in the set amount of time.  Please consider sponsoring a student that you know and encourage them to be healthy and active for a lifetime!  

 

Here at Burchard A. Dunn School, we believe in fostering both the mentalandphysical health of a child. Simply put, a healthy child has fewer absences, learns better, and is less likely to develop weight-related diseases later in life.

Schools play a vital role in the wellness of children. Students spend almost as many waking hours at school as they do at home, and consume up to two thirds of their daily calories here. This means we have an important opportunity – and responsibility – to teach and reinforce healthy habits.

How do we do this? Together with the CATCH coordinated school health program, we tackle school wellness from all angles. Take a walk through our school and you’ll see health-oriented messaging and activities in our classrooms, hallways, cafeteria, and playground. We involve everyone from district administration, to teachers, food service staff, and parents. The biggest impact is made when we all work together – and you can help!

Please consider donating to strengthen our school wellness program, and share with your family and friends to amplify our reach! Meeting our $1,875 goal will fund:

  • Taste tests
  • Rock climbing
  • Field day equipment

Contributions smaller than the lowest amount allowed by credit card are encouraged and can be sent by check or cash in an envelope marked "Wellness."

Thank you for investing in our children’s health and future!
