Theme V: Principals & Administration




Support CATCH. Recognize CATCH MVPs. Thank the CATCH Champion, the CATCH Team, the cafeteria staff and others for their efforts.

Some ideas…
  • Present CATCH Team members with a Certificate of Appreciation at a faculty meeting, acknowledge the Team in the school newsletter and/or on social media with #CATCHworks.
  • Write each member of the Team a letter for his or her personnel file.



Assess your Coordinated School Health efforts for this year. Use the Principal Checklist.

Keep in mind...
  • Share the completed checklist with the CATCH Team to help plan for next year.
  • Share the completed checklist with the district as part of your Campus Improvement Plan.



Review the Campus Improvement Plan. Identify two to three areas in which health and wellness policy can be included or expanded.

Think about…
  • Using the Centers for Disease Control School Health Index as a resource for school health assessment. Hard copy and online versions are available at, search School Health Index. 



Plan for your next snack attack and be prepared. Don’t be tempted by vending machines or fast food. Keep a variety of tasty, nutritious, ready-to-eat snacks at home, work, or wherever you might be.

Some ideas...

  • Make little bags of baby carrots, nuts or dried fruit to help stop hunger. Pack one serving per bag so you are aware of how much you eat.
  • A serving of no fat or low fat yogurt, carrots with hummus, or apples with peanut/almond butter will help give you an energy boost.
