Head Runners for Mayor's 5K

Head Middle Magnet School participated in the Mayor’s 5K on Sunday, Nov. 19. Andrea Hawkins, 8th grade science and physical science teacher, organized the event. School faculty and several families ran or walked. Congrats to Joshua Rice, 6th grade math teacher, and Sarah Diehl, 7th grade math teacher, for finishing with the fastest times at 29 minutes and 32 minutes respectively.


Wednesday, Oct. 3, thousands of students, their parents, teachers and school staffs will hit the pavement and walk to school! It's Walk to School Day, an event designed to raise awareness of healthy living, particularly the importance of physical activity for kids, improved air quality, and safer routes for walking and biking. Fifty six Metro Schools will join thousands of educators, students and community members from across the country in this national movement. Cole Elementary will serve as the lead Metro school and will host a special event including MNPS administrators and Nashville Mayor Karl Dean.


Mayor's Field DayMayor Karl Dean has been working to make Nashville a more healthy city all year - walking 100 miles and hosting a 5K. Now he's truly taking it to another place entirely by taking over LP Field for a city-wide Field Day!

It's on Saturday, May 5, and you can expect the usual round-up of field day events, along with plenty of games, fun, and friends. It's geared toward Nashville's kids (or the kids in all of us), teaching young people great ways to stay active in a more creative and fun way.

From the Mayor's Field Day Website:

Tennessee has the nation’s fourth-highest childhood obesity rate. The numbers are equally distressing in Nashville where 38.1 percent of our youth are either obese or overweight. On May 5, 2012, the journey to a healthier Nashville will continue with the first-ever “Mayor’s Field Day with the Tennessee Titans” at LP Field.

This event will engage families of diverse fitness levels in a relaxed, tournament-type field day designed around learning new, fun, kid-friendly ways to be active. Attendees will enjoy creative games, a fitness fair, a Celebration Awards Ceremony highlighting the day’s events and live entertainment.

In an effort to get our youngest Nashvillians and their families excited about moving and being active, the Mayor’s Field Day experience is open to the public free of charge.

You read that right. It's 100% free for everyone!

There will be plenty of special guests, giving you and your children the chance to compete against Tennessee Titans and some of Metro Schools' own champion athletes.

There's much more information in the flyer below, as well as on the Mayor's Field Day website. A lot of us will be there and we expect to see a lot of you there, too!

Mayor's Field Day



McGavock Elementary students will soon be navigating a new climbing wall thanks to the support of their community. The school was nominated for the Henkel Helps Kids Get Fit program and was awarded the $1,500 Grand Prize! Congratulations.


It's National School Lunch Week (NSLW) and this year's theme is Let's Grow Healthy! Schools across the U.S., including those right here in Metro Nashville, are encouraged to promote School Lunch Week Logo 2011 - a full color logo promoting National School Lunch Weekhealthy eating and physical activity to students, staff and the community. The hope is that students will gain a better understanding of where their food comes from and get excited about healthy school lunch choices.

In Metro Schools, much attention has been placed on creating healthier school menu choices for students. This year, 10 schools are piloting in-line salad bars and scratch-cooking. All schools are offering students healthier, and tasty, menu options that replace unhealthy ingredients with healthier options. Schools are also experimenting with healthier ethnic foods and various other options that are creating much healthier menu options for students.


Check out an excerpt from the National School Lunch Week news release below:

Serving more than 31 million children every school day, the federally-funded National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides nutritionally balanced, healthy meals.  The program, which has been serving the nation's children for over 60 years, requires school meals to meet federal nutrition standards.

  • Meals are based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, meaning they contain no more than 30% of calories from fat, and less than 10% from saturated fat.

  • School lunches include fruits and vegetables, grains and proteins as well as milk, and they must provide one-third of the Recommended Dietary Allowances of protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, iron, calcium, and calories.

  • Meals are served in age-appropriate serving sizes meaning you get the amount of food that your body needs!

The “School Lunch – Let’s Grow Healthy” campaign is sponsored by the non-profit School Nutrition Association and the Milk Processors Education Program (MilkPEP) to highlight all the components of well balanced school meals.  The campaign features fun activity sheets and parent handouts.

For more information about healthy school meals, visit www.TrayTalk.org .



Thousands of students, teachers, principals, family members and community members will walk to school this Wednesday, Oct. 5, as part of the annual Walk to School Day. The event falls in the middle of Walk Nashville Week, a week designated by Mayor Dean to help get Nashvillians moving. Pictured below is the 2010 kick-off event held at Tulip Grove Elementary. This year's kick-off event will be held at DuPont Hadley Middle School. The walk begins at 8:15 a.m., with an assembly following at 9:25 a.m.

 Tulip Grove students hold the Walk to School Day banner.


You joined him in walking 100 miles over the spring and summer. Now Mayor Karl Dean has a new Challenge for Nashvillians: join him in running or walking a 5K in November!

And because every distance run requires training, the Challenge will host a nine-week series of training sessions at Metro parks all over town - starting this Saturday (September 10) at McCabe Park Commnity Center.

Full details on the Challenge are in the flier and links below.


Tuesday, Aug. 9, six Metro Schools were awarded a total of $15,500 by local dairy farmers to support their Fuel Up to Play 60 Initiatives. Gower Elementary, East Literature Magnet, John Early Magnet, Litton Middle, Meigs Magnet, and Two Rivers Middle were selected out of hundreds of schools across the country that applied. They will use the funds to jumpstart and sustain healthy nutrition and physical activity programs. According to a news release issued by Fuel Up to Play 60, schools will:
