In 2013, ACT launched a College & Career Readiness Campaign to celebrate achievement and create awareness around the goal for all students to be prepared for college or a career upon graduation. Edina Public Schools is proud to congratulate Edina High School (EHS) senior Jack White for being one of the four Minnesota finalists for the ACT National Student Readiness Award.
Since 2009, Connecting With Kids (CWK) has been honoring members of the Edina community for their commitment to investing in and leading area youth. The vision of CWK is for Edina to be a community where all children have the support they need to grow up to be responsible, healthy and caring adults.
According to the CDC, most U.S. youth do not meet the recommendations for exercise or eating a healthy diet. But a recent study from the University of Massachusetts Boston found increases in not only overall physical activity, but also in how often kids are eating fruits and vegetables. The study’s lead author, Ronald Iannotti, attributes much of this success to public health efforts, including health campaigns made by public schools.
