Every Kid Healthy Celebration Week

Print the Flyer and Sponsorship Page

Wilmington Public Schools will partner with the Wilmington Educational Foundation to highlight the importance of our students’ health and wellness. The Every Kid Healthy national movement celebration will promote and reinforce the WPS beliefs in healthy eating, physical activity, nutrition education and physical education for academic success.


During this week long celebration all students and families are invited to participate in W.H.A.M. Wilmington Healthy Actively Moving Day at their child’s school. Each W.H.A.M. walk will include walking at your child’s school together. The walking will demonstrate the importance of 60 minutes of daily physical activity for health and wellness. In the weeks leading up to the W.H.A.M. walk students are encouraged to ask a family relative to sponsor their participation in the walk during the school day. All children will participate in the W.H.A.M. walk with classmates, teachers and family.


The W.H.A.M. walk will benefit the Wilmington Educational Foundation. The proceeds will be donated to the Wilmington Educational Foundation to provide support for the grant programs offered to all staff and schools in the district. Thank you for your continued support on behalf on the Wilmington Public Schools & Wilmington Educational Foundation! We look forward to walking together on Monday, April 24, 2017 at each school!!
