The Green Schoolhouse
Green Schoolhouse Series
BCBSAZ is proud to support and contribute to The Green Schoolhouse Series. The Green Schoolhouse Series brings together corporations, foundations, school districts, municipalities, communities, media outlets, and volunteers to build 21st-century, environmentally-sustainable schoolhouses on existing Title I, low-income, K-12 public school campuses.
As a key element to making these schools healthy and green “inside and out,” we are working on the development of an integrated health and wellness curriculum and green gardens to promote nutrition and wellness in these disadvantaged schools. The green gardens will teach children about healthy eating and physical activity by allowing them to use and maintain the garden. They also will be used for parent and child education classes on nutrition and physical activity. In addition, BCBSAZ volunteers will help these schools develop and implement a wellness curriculum that blends seamlessly with the green gardens to teach children about the importance of eating right and staying fit from their earliest years.
