First Parent Academy Meeting of the Year!

Our first Parent Academy of the year will be on Wednesday, September 23rd at 6:30pm in the Anchorage Auditorium.

This year, through funding from the APTA, the school is implementing a special program through the Louisville Youth Training Center.  This parent volunteer program will focus on teaching students healthy habits including nutrition, simple cooking and effective exercise incorporating the 5 components of fitness.

The program is designed to supplement the extensive health, fitness and nutrition curriculum already in place at Anchorage School.

Parent involvement will be key to the program’s future success, so join us for this one-hour program that includes a brief overview of LYTC on the Go, a description of how volunteers are implementing the program at Anchorage School and a presentation by Dr. Heuser on the Science of Nutrition and Exercise.
