The Office of Healthy Schools launched the “Health is Academic” initiative in 2004 to encourage health and wellness in Mississippi's public schools. The goal of the initiative is to support the implementation of school health programs to ensure students are fit, healthy, and ready to succeed. The Office of Healthy Schools needs Success Stories that tell about activities and health related improvements at our schools. These Success Stories will be used as an example to help others make successful changes.
