IU Health Strong Schools
Research shows that healthier students are better learners and that physical activity can improve student academic achievement as well as other factors that influence academic success in school, such as classroom behavior and attendance.1
Would you like to add 30 minutes of physical activity to your elementary students’ day and help build their academic success? Indiana University Health is committed to improving health and supports opportunities for more physical activity in our elementary schools and communities.
Because healthier and more active kids tend to learn better, IU Health will provide 30 or more IU Health Strong Schools grants to elementary schools in the 15 counties that house an IU Health hospital across the state.
The following IU Health Strong Schools grants are available:
- $1500 IU Health Stronger Schools (Focus on students & staff) - Grants include Fitnessgram software to collect wellness metrics.
- $3000 IU Health Strongest Schools (Focus on students, staff & community) - Grants include Fitnessgram software to collect wellness metrics.
