Title
PA5 PTA Healthy Lifestyles Month

Description
The Palm Beach County Council of PTA/PTSA and all PTA members celebrate November as Healthy Lifestyles Month to emphasize the important role families can play in keeping their children healthy and ready to learn.  The Palm Beach County Council of PTA will host "PTA Day in the Park," a day to encourage families to join together on November 17, 2012, and commit themselves to living a healthier lifestyle. The Council awards grants to local PTA units to provide a variety of Health and Wellness programs to families throughout Palm Beach County. 

Recommendation
I recommend the School Board of Palm Beach County proclaims the month of November 2012 as PTA Healthy Lifestyles Month in the School District of Palm Beach County and, BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that all those in the School District join the celebration by promoting good nutrition and regular physical activity in order to reduce the risk of obesity and improve the overall health of students and families.
