Healthy Schools Certification

Spring Creek Elementary was recently awarded, once again, the title of Certified Healthy School in the Excellence category.

Becoming a Certified Healthy School means we are providing a healthy environment for students and employees, along with supporting an overall healthier Oklahoma. By meeting most or all of the criteria to become Certified Healthy, schools provide an established environment to foster behavior modification among students and employees, in addition to policy adoption and implementation. Introducing children and youth to healthy behaviors and practices now will support lifelong healthy habits.
