Healthy Choices

Students who establish healthy eating and activity patterns often carry them into adulthood improving their chances for long, healthy lives.  We offer several programs at St. Johns Middle School to support the development of these healthy habits. 

Health Course

Sixth graders are enrolled in a required health class based on the Michigan Model for Comprehensive School Health Education.

Physical Education Courses

Sixth graders take required physical education.  Seventh grader and eighth graders have access to several physical education options, all of which are electives.

FuelUp to Play 60 100-Mile Walking Club 

The 100-Mile Walking Club, funded by a grant through Fuel Up to Play 60 and coordinated by interns from the Michigan State University School of Nursing in coordination with district nurse Karla Palmer , began at lunch on October 22, 2015.  If you child signed up, he/she can log miles at home as well to work toward their goal of 100 miles this school year.
