FCHS In-School Programs

In-School Programs:

  • Fight Germs-Wash Your Hands- An interactive workshop for children (preschool-3rd grade) that includes a story or puppet show, hand-washing activities and craft.
  • StoryTime Foods – Nutrition Education for Preschoolers. We choose a fruit or vegetable that is in season and learn how we bring it from the farm to our table. This educational program teaches children the importance of good nutrition, the role farms play in enriching our communities and environment.
  • School Wellness: What’s It All About?- Review the guidelines for NJ’s model school wellness policy and nutrition standards, and gain resources for the School Wellness Team.
