Family Engagement:
As part of CATCH Health Ed Journeys Sponsored by The CATCH MVP Game Show Fosters Family Fun & Learning!

The CATCH MVP Game Show is a great resource for educators to help motivate their students and families to learn and practice healthy behaviors together. As an educator, you play an important role in the lives of your students and we know through your encouragement, families will become inspired to continue their child’s learning outside of the classroom.

We offer four game show episodes that are interactive and fun, and are also available in Spanish. Episodes focus on important topics such as healthy eating, mental well-being, and safety.

How It Works

First, families learn about healthy habits together by watching the CATCH MVP Game Show episodes. Share links to each episode with your families and school community and encourage them to participate.

“What Is a CATCH MVP?”
“Let’s Hear It for Healthy Eating!”
“Nourishing Your Mind-Heart-Body”
“Staying Safe”

Then, families practice what they have learned by completing the fun MVP challenges after each episode. Alternatively, you can plan a family event or campaign to encourage and celebrate being healthy together.

Bonus, make it even more fun and exciting by adding a little friendly competition.

  • Invite families to share with you through social media, email, or other ways and offer a prize or reward. Idea: Classroom with the most participating families earns positive recognition or a special privilege like extra recess time.
  • Be recognized by CATCH as a MVP school! Share about families in your school community who are Moving and staying active, Valuing healthy eating, and Practicing healthy habits with CATCH here or by posting on social media and tagging us on Facebook or Instagram using #CATCHMVP.
