Northgate Receives Two Grants from Action for Healthy Kids® and CSX
Northgate School District Receives Two Grants from Action for Healthy Kids® and CSX to Advance Physical Activity and Healthy Eating Habits Among Students

Bellevue, PA (September 6, 2017) – Northgate School District is the proud recipient of two grants from Action for Healthy Kids® (AFHK) for the 2017-2018 school year. The Game On grant is provided through funding by CSX Transportation to expand student access to physical activity and healthy foods in school, improve knowledge and behaviors around physical activity and healthy eating, and engage parents in activities that reinforce healthy habits at home.

The Middle/High School and Bellevue Elementary will each receive $1,000 to promote healthy habits in their students. They will use their grants to purchase Tower Gardens in order to promote learning about nutrition and healthy eating habits. Students will have the opportunity to grow, harvest, and prepare vegetables and herbs. This past year, Avalon Elementary received a grant for a Tower Garden and had great success engaging students in lessons revolving around leading a healthy lifestyle. The district is excited about the opportunity to expand on this success.

“We recognize the impact of physical activity, good nutrition and general wellness on our students’ health and learning and are excited to create an even healthier school environment with the funding and resources from Action for Healthy Kids and CSX,” said Dr. Caroline Johns, Superintendent.

The Northgate schools are two of 300 schools receiving a CSX-funded Game On grant along with technical support to implement its grant utilizing AFHK’s Game On program in the 2017-2018 school year. Since 2013, CSX-supported school grants have helped 1,353 schools implement health and wellness initiatives, impacting nearly 700,000 students. For a complete list of schools funded by CSX in the 2017-2018 school year, visit ActionforHealthyKids.org/CSX.
