Student Health

The Appleton Area School District promotes healthy schools by supporting wellness, good nutrition, and regular physical activity as part of the total learning environment. The District supports a healthy environment where children learn and participate in positive dietary and lifestyle practices. By facilitating learning through the support and promotion of good nutrition and physical activity, schools contribute to the basic health status of children. Improved health optimizes student performance potential. (Board Policy 341.34)

Johnston is one of only eight elementary schools in the entire state to be recognized as a Wisconsin School of Health-Gold level. The main goal of our nationally recognized Healthy Kids Program is to provide children with greater opportunities for physical activity and better nutrition choices while integrating health/physical education into the core curriculum.  

Students receive physical education weekly from a certified physical education teacher and two additional “Fit N 15” periods with their classroom teacher on non-physical education days. The hope is that through education children will avoid health-risk behavior choices such as tobacco and drug use, alcohol abuse, and sedentary lifestyles.
