Healthy Schools Summit

Healthy Schools SummitThe Mayor's Fitness Council's Healthy Schools Summits serve as opportunities for the discussion of the successes, goals and challenges facing San Antonio schools in the areas of health, fitness, nutrition and social media. The goals these annual summits are to bring together superintendents and their leadership teams from school districts across San Antonio to share best practice, current programs and initiatives that school districts have proposed and embraced. At these summits expert speakers from various areas of health and wellness, and individuals from the community, including parents, teachers, administrators and city organizations learn new information and share best practices about wellness policies in San Antonio's school districts. All summits are free and open to the general public.

The Healthy Schools Initiative focuses on improving nutrition and physical activity in schools throughout San Antonio. The Healthy Schools Initiative supports similarly focused national initiatives and organizations, including First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move initiative, the Healthier US Schools Challenge, and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation.
