Timmerman CATCH

The CATCH Program (Coordinated Approach To Child Health) brings schools, families, and communities together to teach children how to be healthy for a lifetime. CATCH is effective because healthy behaviors are reinforced through a coordinated approach-in the Classroom, in the Cafeteria, in Physical Education, at Home, and After School. CATCH is research-based and proven to work. And, most importantly, CATCH makes nutrition learning and physical activity FUN! (http://catchinfo.org/catch-for-schools/)

CATCH PE combines high energy, non-elimination activities with teaching strategies that keep kids moving and having fun. CATCH PE significantly increases physical activity levels of students during PE class, and provides for a variety of learning experiences for students of all abilities.(http://catchinfo.org/catch-for-schools/)

Timmerman provides physical fitness testing (Coach Bell and Mr. Michael) with data and reports to parents on students health, progress, and phsical fitness data. Timmeran participates in weekly pacers as well as Marathon Kids to tie the home-school connection together and promote student health.

The CATCH Program considers school cafeterias an extension of the classroom. Through the Eat Smart component, breakfast and lunch become opportunities for children to learn, practice, and adopt healthy eating habits. School Food Service personnel prepare healthier meals and help coordinate healthy messages with the rest of the school.(http://catchinfo.org/catch-for-schools/) Timmerman has labeled food slow, whoa, and go foods and color coded choices to make it easier for students to select a well balanced meal at lunch. This allows students to make healthy choices daily, hopefully creating life long healthy eaters!
