Southern Door receives grant for healthy learning

Southern Door’s efforts to keep kids active and healthy are being recognized with a $1,000 grant. This past school year, Southern Door began a before-school physical activity program for students who don’t participate in the breakfast program. It was designed to get kids active instead of just standing around waiting for school to start if students took the bus. In the spring, the school applied for the Wisconsin School Health Award according to Elementary School Principal Cory Vandertie. He along with Pupil Services Director David Desmond and Partners in Health Chairperson Sarah Soukup completed the application. Vandertie says the grant will go right back into the before-school physical activity program.



Vandertie says he has gotten great feedback from students, staff and parents about the new program.
