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
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 http://www.monroehealth.org/me-my-guy-dance/ or call 423-519-1232.

Sweetwater City Schools Coordinated School Health
Tennessee Coordinated School Health connects physical, emotional and social health with education through eight inter-related components. This coordinated approach improves students' health and their capacity to learn through the support of families, communities and schools working together. Coordinated School Health works with many partners to address school health priorities
Our students are a priority, as is our community. Some of what we do wouldn't be possible without the help of our community partners! We want to thank them for all that they do!
