Healthy Lifestyles Quick Start Guide


Why have a Healthy Lifestyles program?

  • Parents want to be certain they are doing the right things to ensure their children grow into healthy, happy adults.
  • Schools want to be certain they are doing the right things to ensure their students stay in school and graduate as educated, productive adults.


What do you need to do?

  • Become familiar with National and Texas PTA resources.
  • Attend Local PTA executive board and regular meetings.
  • Visit with your school principal to determine how to support Local District Wellness Policy and healthy lifestyles initiatives.
  • Determine local issues and needs through PTA websites, local and national media, school district policies, school board meeting topics, and member surveys.
