Coordinated School Health

Connecting Health and Wellness with Learning and Education

4380 Harrison Rd, Lenoir City, TN 37771                                                             (865) 986-2036

The mission of Coordinated School Health (CSH) is to improve student health and their capacity to learn through the support of families, communities, and schools. Funding for CSH is provided by the Tennessee State Legislature through the Department of Education. Matching funds and community resources are necessary to help schools solve complex health issues. The benefits of the program include: 1) reduced absenteeism, 2) fewer behavior problems in the classroom, and 3) improved student health and performance. Special thanks to the Tennessee State Legislature for making Tennessee the first state in the nation to mandate Coordinated School Health statewide.

The Covenant Kids Run:

The Covenant Kids Run is a fun 1.2 mile non-competitive run/walk for kids 8th grade and under that will be held Saturday, March 29, 2014 at 6:00 pm.  The starting line is at the World’s Fair Park and kids finish on the 50-yard line of Neyland Stadium. By participating, kids can also “run a marathon.” Just run or walk a total of 25 miles between registration and the Covenant Kids Run and track progress in a log book.  The schools with the greatest participation of students completing the Kids Run will win Fittest School Challenge Awards.

To help students log miles some of the Loudon County elementary and middle schools are offering a running/walking club one day per week starting the week of January 27.

There are prizes available for schools, coaches, and students who participate…

Covenant Health Fittest School Challenge

Elementary and middle schools in the following counties are eligible: Anderson, Blount, Hamblen, Jefferson, Knox, Loudon, Roane, and Sevier.

 Schools from all eight counties will be pooled together for the Fittest School Challenge.  Winning schools are based upon highest percentage of student population participating in the March 29 Covenant Kids Run.  (Fast or slow, all kids count the same toward the challenge….we are encouraging participation!)  With this  structure, multiple schools from an individual county could win prize money!  To be counted toward their school, a child needs to participate in the March 29 Covenant Kids Run and identify their school during registration.

Loudon County Schools Coordinated School Health Challenge:

The eight elementary and middle schools in Loudon County Schools will be competing in this challenge.  Any school that has an organized Covenant Kids Run running/walking club is eligible.  Schools with the highest percentage of participation in the running club practices plus the highest percentage of students registered for the Covenant Kids Run will win prizes for their school and coaches!  *Prizes will be announced at a later date – stay tuned!
