Theme III: Principals & Administration




Communicate CATCH. Post the CATCH MVP Eat Smart (English/Spanish) & Be Active (English/Spanish) posters in the office area. 

Keep in mind...
  • You can distribute an electronic version of the posters to parents via email.
  • Post (at least) one picture of a GO food on social media and explain the GO, SLOW, WHOA terminology. Use #GoSlowWhoa.



Encourage teachers to display CATCH student work in hallways, classrooms, and cafeteria. 

Some ideas...
  • Sponsor a grade level Healthiest Hallway/Door decorating contest, and/or ask teachers to donate student work to decorate the cafeteria.
  • Initiate CATCH related Announcements (see CATCHy Ideas Kit). 



Institute one or two school-wide policies designed to promote healthy change.

Some ideas...
  • Healthy Meeting Policy–When planning food for school meetings (faculty meetings, PTA/PTO, Campus Advisory Council, etc.), only healthy snacks and foods should be served.
  • PE Policy–Students will not be pulled from PE class as a consequence or for tutoring.
  • Mission Nutrition Policy–Encourage parents to send only healthy snacks to school–in lunches and for class parties and celebrations.



Move a bit more. It doesn’t take an expensive gym membership to get the daily recommended amount of physical activity. Try to accumulate 30 minutes of physical activity each day.

Some ideas...

  • Park farther away to increase the amount you walk each day.
  • Stretch during a TV show.
  • Invest in a pedometer, activity tracker, and/or walk with students.
