MERSD Healthier US School Award Winners!

Core Value Spotlight – Whole Child Education:  We believe schools must establish a safe environment conducive to the development of the whole child, which extends beyond the academic core to include experiential learning, the arts, cultural awareness, and physical and emotional well being.

Manchester Essex Regional School District is being awarded the HealthierUS School Challenge (HUSSC) bronze award for Memorial and Essex Elementary. The HUSSC is a recognition award for schools that have demonstrated a commitment to excellence in both nutrition and physical education to promote a healthier school environment for children. It is a wonderful accomplishment for the food service department, the students, and the district.

Each student enters school healthy and learns about and practices a healthy lifestyle.  Our school supports, promotes, and reinforces healthy eating patterns and food safety in routine food services and special programming and events for students and staff.
