Healthy School Environment (5)
This year's Bushy Dash had a Halloween Theme. The main fundraiser for the PTA for the past three years! 100% of the money collected funds PTA activities and events - classroom enrichment, school assemblies, Family Fun events, and much more! Every student was be able to participate in the fundraiser and parents are invited to come and cheer on their child during their grade level special arts time on Thursday, October 24th. Students were sponsored to run or walk in the event and a great time was had by all. This is a healthy initiative and prevents the selling of products in the environment through other fundraisers such as selling wrapping paper.

Jump Rope for Heart
What & Why:
Walking Wednesdays is part of Bushy Park’s Health School initiative.Students have option to walk around a laid out part of the field during recess. They keep track of the number of laps they walk and volunteers record it on their index card. We keep track of all the laps they walk the entire year and give out awards for the students in each grade who walk the most as well as the grade the walks most! Its a great way to get the kids moving at recess!
