Weekly Parent Connect
This week we held our Annual Moving with Moms/Dashing with Dads Event in the gym to kick off our school wide health initiative for this year. Our goal is for our entire school family to participate in one of our monthly events next semester in order to become a physically, mentally, and emotionally healthier version of themselves. When our families are healthier, our students come to school at their most optimal in order to learn and be successful at school. Below is some additional information about this semester’s monthly events, as well as more information about our Campus Health Advisory Committee.
- WAIT Training-This is a curriculum that will begin for students in late January early February during their P.E. period. Parents are invited to attend the January 22nd WAIT training meeting, right before STEM night to learn more about the curriculum. Students are welcome to attend the training, but due to the sensitive nature of some material coaches will bring students whose parents do not want their student to attend to the gym on that evening to participate in P.E. activities.
The WAIT training curriculum focuses on the development of adolescents-physically, intellectually, emotionally, spiritually and socially.
February-April (These events are tentative and subject to change)
- Yoga (A parent, student, and teacher event will be held which focuses on physical and mental health and relaxation techniques that students and parents can utilize at home).
- Bootcamp (A parent, student, and teacher event will be held focusing specifically on physical health).
- Internet Safety Training

What is our Campus Health Advisory Committee?
The goal of the Carter Lomax middle school Campus Health Advisory Committee or CHAC is to coordinate school health initiatives and goals for all members of the Carter Lomax family and community. This past semester the CHAC team had one of the most successful semester since the committee was formed. The committee features many different staff members including administrators, classroom teachers, P.E. teachers, school nurse and the campus nutrition manager. As a committee we meet once a month to discuss and brainstorm ideas for both the staff and the students to be overall healthier individuals. Below are a list of some of the special events and initiatives that the committee has hosted this year for both students and staff.
- Mighty Milers- Meets every Friday morning at 7:30, the purpose of this club is to promote lifelong love of running/walking.
- Dashing with Dads/Moving with Moms- Parents were invited to participate in organized activities with their students.
- Walk for Sight- walk-a-thon to raise money for the Pasadena Lion’s club.
- District wide move more and try it challenges in which teachers were encouraged to simply get up and move more and encouraged to incorporate eating more fruits and vegetables in their daily diet.
- After school yoga and boot camp- teachers met frequently after school to participate in yoga and boot camp.
As a committee we are constantly brainstorming for new ideas to be more successful in reaching the school family in regards to making better choices when it comes to their health. If you have any ideas or would like to join us for an upcoming meeting please contact Mrs. Crum at tcrum@Pasadenaisd.org or Coach Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org.
