Sand Creek High School Wellness

Below is a snapshot of how Sand Creek High School ensures school wellness. The slideshow following it provides images of our students and faculty united in action.
 
April 28th from 5-7pm, is the Sand Creek Zone's Health and Wellness Expo!  This year, the expo will be bigger and better than ever!  There will be FREE food, FREE exercise classes, FREE childcare, FREE entertainment, a FREE mini cheer clinic, and FREE raffle tickets at the door for plenty of FREE door prizes!  There will be over 30 vendors with tables set up in the main gym, all giving away a prize and YOU can win just by attending! With your attendance to this event, you will also be helping a club or sport raise $500!  
Each club and sport (per request) will receive tickets with their sport/club on it.  If you present your ticket at the door, they will receive a point.  The club and sport with the most people in attendance will win $500 from the Zone!  They are also giving away $1000 to the elementary school with the most people in attendance, $1000 to the grade level at Horizon with the most people in attendance, and then of course, $500 to the club and $500 to the sport with the most people in attendance from Sand Creek.  
This is a great event and is helping your students!  If no one gives you a ticket before the event, there will be blank ones available where you can write in your favorite club or sport so that they still get credit!
There will also be a BLOOD DRIVE from 4pm to 8pm in the wrestling room so come out, donate blood and you can win some really cool prizes!

Our commitment to physical activity

  • Physical education is provided in elementary, middle and high school.
  • Strenuous physical activity is not used (e.g. running laps, pushups) as punishment.
  • Generally, students should not be required to “sit out” any part of recess as punishment unless there is a safety concern.
  • Elementary school students will have a minimum of 30-minutes daily of physical activity. Recess for 1⁄2 day Kindergarten will be determined at those individual buildings.  Physical activity can include recess, physical education classes, fitness breaks, active classroom activities, exercise programs, or active field trips.
