Ideas for Healthy Classroom Celebrations & Fundraisers

Monterey Peninsula Unified School District has a Wellness Policy that recognizes the link between student health and learning and stands to promote a healthy school environment with parent/guardian and community involvement.

We appreciate your support of our efforts by providing foods and beverages to students that abide by our district's adopted nutritional guidelines for any school celebration, events and fundraisers. To assist you in this effort, please visit the links below for ideas for healthy alternatives that still provide the fun and celebration that our students deserve (extra recess time? Yes, please!)

For more information on the Wellness Policy, or to review the nutrition guidelines, please visit the Wellness Council tab on the Nutrition Services website.
