Granby Elementary School was the recipient of a Healthy Schools Award given by the Colorado Education Initiative (formerly the Legacy Foundation), during the Initiative’s annual gathering at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Denver on April 17. The school was chosen from hundreds of applicants and earned one of 40 monetary awards, $500, to be used to promote Granby Elementary’s plan for a healthy school. “It’s the partnerships with our school community, PTA, and our many families that continue to move our school forward in a healthy direction,” said Granby Elementary School Principal Jane Harmon. “Whether its healthy snacks for kids, physical activities such as our annual walkathon, running club and Monday Morning Movers or Health Education, we encourage our students and staff to be active.” The school’s Physical Education classes and health programs are among the programs that have brought Granby Elementary to a new level of health and wellness. Harmon along with the Granby Elementary School Health Team continue to be advocates for the health of children at Granby Elementary.
