Wow! How is summer almost here? Even though the 2021-2022 school year and PTA year are ending, it’s never too early to start planning for next year.

The identified National Observances that can be found in Texas PTA’s new Healthy Lifestyles Year-at-a-Glance resource are meant to help coordinate themes throughout the year. You may wish to have a theme per month or only try two to three themes per year. The best programs are created by people who are responding to the needs and interests of their own PTA members. This may be accomplished by using a simple survey or identifying them with your Healthy Lifestyles committee at the beginning of the year.

Remember to always check with your principal before sending anything home to all the parents. Also, check the Healthy Lifestyles newsletter for coordination tips on National Observances throughout the year.
