October – HAWKS Parents, Scholar Leaders and Scholars Observe Wellness Week October 10th – 14th

Parents ​received diabetes and blood pressure testing from a Health Educator from the Newark Community Health Care Center. They were also provided with information about healthy eating habits from a Rutgers University dietitian​. Parents also participated in a Pumpkin Twist Exercise.

​Murray the Monkey ​visited our scholars and provided them with samples of healthy snacks! Students visited the healthy snack station  to choose from a selection of carrots, strawberries, blueberries, broccoli,  and more.    Students also visited a sugar station to observe how many teaspoons of sugar can be found in everyday snacks we eat.

It was a fun, healthy and informative week for all. ​​
