CATCH at MPGS
CATCH stand for Coordinated Approach to Child Health. It is a framework to create a healthy school environment that supports healthy eating and physical activity. We want to help make the healthy choice the easy choice for all students and teachers. By uniting multiple players in a child’s life to create a community of health, CATCH is proven to prevent childhood obesity. For 25 years, this program has helped launch kids and communities toward healthier lifestyles. As a CATCH school, your child receives messaging in physical education, the lunchroom, and the classroom, to help positively influence their choices toward healthy living.
