ARE Wins Healthiest School Award
Arapahoe Ridge was the first winner of the district’s “Golden Sneaker” award for the 2013-14 school year! The award is given to a school considered the "heathliest" given various requisites. As the winner, our school received $500 to go towards wellness initiatives.
The main focus in our application is the development of a school garden. School gardens are an expensive start-up and other grants have been applied for. If successful, all students will have the opportunity to participate in the garden, with links to school curriculum at all grade levels. The garden would provide a learning environment, teaching students nutrition lessons that foster a healthy lifestyle!
