You are cordially invited to attend Tohickon Middle School’s Health Fair for parents and community members on Tuesday, March 11, 2014 from 6:30-8:30 PM. Parents and community members are invited to take part in twelve interactive stations in the gym and attend two thirty-minute informational sessions from 7:00-8:00 PM. Please be aware that our evening speakers are geared specifically to parents.

Tohickon Middle School has been involved in this major health initiative for the past five years through the Alliance For a Healthier Generation, Fuel Up to Play 60, the Mid Atlantic Dairy Council, Kids Gardening and the Whole Kids Foundation. Tohickon won the Bronze Award for our efforts through the Alliance for a Healthier Generation in the 2012-2013 school year.

We hope to see you on March 11 from 6:30-8:30 PM for an informative and entertaining evening of nutrition and physical activity. Our student health ambassadors will be on hand as guides.
