Promoting Healthy Lifestyles

choose-my-plateHealth leadership is one of the many ways PTA volunteers can positively impact the lives of all children and families. The National PTA and California State PTA consider health education to be of major importance.

When PTA leaders begin program planning for the upcoming year, consider adding a health focus or goal. Parent education events, newsletter and social media communications, school events and even a community-wide event are just some of the ways to promote healthy lifestyles.
