At Van Hise we believe in growing healthy children in a number of ways. We encourage an active lifestyle both in and outside our school. In addition, we provide nutritious food for students through our Backyard Bites program. Backyard Bites is a parent-run program where community partnerships provide local, healthy food to serve our children once a month. From Kale chips to yogurt with fruit, our children are learning more about fruits and vegetables that they have never had the opportunity to eat. Students and adults alike enjoy having a fresh local snack that fuels our minds and bodies for learning!
