Wellness Theme Days
The Wellness Theme Days are considered “push” days for coordination among all areas of Coordinated School Health. The intent is to focus coordination efforts on those six days within that particular six weeks. The District has simple and easy ideas for each theme day that are emailed to the Wellness Team Champions on each campus and made available on the district’s intranet curriculum page.
All Wellness Theme Days have ideas/suggestions for all eight components of coordinated school health, plus the additional ninth component of Student Involvement from Dallas ISD. The titles were purposely considered to be inclusive of all CSH components. For example, there is “Try-It Tuesday” instead of “Tasty Tuesday” to have a broader reach than simply nutrition. The five Theme Days are:
Moving Modays- 1st Six Weeks
Try it Tuesday- 2nd Six Weeks
Wellness Wednesday-3rd Six Weeks
Thursty Thursday 4th Six Weeks
Friendly Friday- 5th Six WeeksThey not only link back to our district adopted CSH Program (i.e., CATCH), it also connects to the district’s Connecting Wellness Calendar. It provides ideas of “what” can be coordinated that six weeks and “who” it can be coordinated with.
