Theme V: Specialized and Support Staff (6wk)




Strut your healthy stuff! Coordinate with the PE Teacher and the Cafeteria Manager about how you can contribute to their CATCH projects.

You can…
  • Contribute a picture of yourself being healthy to respective bulletin boards [PE – I Like to Move It, Move It! (English/Spanish); Cafeteria – I Like to Cook It, Cook It! (English/Spanish)].
  • Post a picture of the completed bulletin boards on social media. Use #CATCHworks.



Recognize the campus health MVPs. Thank the CATCH Champion, the CATCH Team and the Cafeteria and other staff for their efforts. 

Some ideas...
  • Celebrate Child Nutrition Services Employee Appreciation Week (the first week in May). (click on Staff Appreciation and Events).
  • Present Team members with an appreciation certificate at a faculty meeting; acknowledge the Team in the school newsletter.
  • Write thank you letters to school staff who serve on the CATCH Team.



Share your MVP expertise!

Some ideas...
  • Share a story about who is your CATCH MVP role model.
  • Offer to help display healthy messages and prepare and offer healthy snacks at regularly scheduled school events (field day, PTA assemblies, faculty meetings, etc.).



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.
