The KSDE Child Nutrition & Wellness Group is sponsoring an initiative called "Eat Smart Play Hard". This initiative provides videos to families in 3 segments; Eating Smart, Playing Hard & Take it Home. Each month throughout the school year there will be 3 new videos added to the website and the school's facebook page for families to view.
