State Street School was one of 24 Vermont schools statewide that will receive $1,000 from the Vermont Department of Health as a School Wellness District Winner. The Health Department recognizes schools that promote at least 30 minutes of physical activity each day outside of physical education classes, and meet other criteria such as having an anti-tobacco policy and healthy food guidelines. The awards program, given annually in partnership with the Agency of Education, New England Dairy and Food Council, and the Vermont Health Education Initiative was started in 2003 to transform schools and communities into places where healthy lifestyle choices are easy.
