Nutrition Services that promotes and teaches healthy eating behaviors; 2. Physical education that provides students with the skills to be active for life; 3. Healthy school environment which provides a safe environment for learning; 4. Health promotion for staff to keep our teachers healthy; 5. Psychological and Counseling services that focus on cognitive, emotional, behavioral and social needs of our students; 6. Health services that provide emergency and preventative services for our students; 7. Health education to provide classroom instruction on all healthy components; and, 8. Family and Community involvement of our partners and parents to maximize resources and expertise in supporting the health of our students. Community partners take an active role in providing access to healthy activities and health information to our schools. For example, the City of Santa Clara provides many opportunities to exercise and play through after-school activities, including the Youth Activity Center located on the Cabrillo Middle School campus; the San Francisco 49ers provided a fully equipped exercise room at Buchser Middle School; Kaiser Permanente, through the direct involvement of their doctors, provides health information at many of our schools. Over thirty partners and community organizations were on display at the SCUSD Health Fair which was held at the Youth Activity Center last January. The Health Fair provided parents an opportunity to learn about healthy life styles and eating choices and to talk to health care providers. Healthy students make healthy learners.
