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. This information conveys that helping children grow up healthy takes families, schools and communities working together.
