    A statewide audience of educators and health professionals saw firsthand how a public/private partnership can use the classroom to help students learn and become healthy.

    District 50’s “Brain Gym” program was prominently featured in a video to honor the work of Kaiser Permanente and Donna Lynne, DrPH, Executive Vice President of Kaiser Foundation Hospitals and Health Plan. She was honored at the fourth annual Great Education Colorado Luncheon.

    Last February, the Insider told you that District 50 had received funds from the Thriving Schools Initiative to find innovative ways to have students incorporate healthy activities during the course of their day. To help attendees at the luncheon better understand the program, a video crew spent time at Hodgkins Elementary School and in the classroom of teacher Chris Prodis as she utilized the “Brain Gym” concept.
