Well Child

Well Child provides healthcare to students by bringing medical professionals to the schools. This means that students do not have to be checked out of school to have their annual well child visit. If you would like for your child to be seen by Well Child you can click the link below and fill out the online form.

Power U

Power U is a curriculum geared towards fourth graders and brought to us by our partners at the University of Tennessee Extension. The curriculum focuses on making healthy choices and leading active lifestyles.

Fourth graders at Sweetwater City Schools will be diving into this 4 week long study during their library time. They will discuss fruits and vegetables, ways to stay active, eating a variety of nutritious foods, and many more things all in 4 weeks!

Father-Daughter and Mother-Son Dance at Tsali Notch

Mark your calendars in November. Monroe County STOPe will have a Father-Daughter Dance on November 9th and a Mother-Son Dance on November 10th.

This two-day event will provide separate opportunities for both Fathers and Mothers to treat their special guy(s) or gal(s). DADS will sweep their little lady(ies) off their feet on Friday night and MOMS will be treated to an evening of fun with their little guy(s) the following Saturday.

The Monroe STOPe Dance is offered as a violence prevention effort, encouraging healthy relationships between children and their Fatherly/Motherly figure while providing a stage for setting high standards, increased sociability, and a greater sense of self-worth. The dance will be FREE to attend. This years theme is "Under The Big Top @ Tsali Notch".

For more information about the dance, you can visit or call 423-519-1232.
