Healthy Kids/Healthy Planet (HK/HP) is a PTA committee at Ashlawn Elementary School in Arlington, VA, that seeks to ensure, through a variety of ways, that children's health and wellness is a central focus of the school day. (It was formerly known as CHAWK.) In our work, we draw heavily from research, which shows that healthy children are better learners, score higher marks on tests, exhibit fewer behavioral problems in the classroom, and are, in general, more relaxed.
