See digital pledge card links below!

District 64 is proud to co-sponsor 2018 Healthy Living Month in Park Ridge. It's a community-wide initiative that focuses on building awareness of healthy behavior choices through education. The month targets health, nutrition, fitness, safety, and understanding the environment.

The official proclamation of Healthy Living Month will occur at the Park Ridge City Council meeting on Monday, April 2 at 7:00 p.m. District 64 representatives will accept the proclamation. 

The weekly themes for 2018 include:

  • April 2-6 HEALTH & NUTRITION WEEK - Students eat more fruits and vegetables!
  • April 9-13 NEAT TO USE YOUR FEET WEEK - Students are physically active before school, at school, and after school.
  • April 16-20 GO GREEN WEEK - Each day students do something good for the Earth and celebrate Earth Day on April 22.
  • April 23-27 SCREEN-FREE WEEK - Students refrain from screens and enjoy reading, sports, and other fun activities.

Individual school PTO/A's also schedule family-friendly events during the month, too.
