SCAPA receives national-level Family Engagement Distinction

Lexington’s SCAPA at Bluegrass is among four Kentucky schools to receive the Alliance for a Healthier Generation’s first-ever Family Engagement Distinction, presented by Kohl’s Healthy at Home. This award, which went to 96 schools nationwide, recognizes a select group of America’s Healthiest Schools that are committed to strengthening partnerships between families and educators as they foster healthy physical, social, and emotional environments at home and at school.

“This award is an award for the SCAPA families. We have the best Wellness Committee and families around. They are excited and engaged in creating a healthy school environment for our students and staff because they know healthy students learn better and healthy staff teach better,” said Angela Stark, the school’s P.E. and health teacher.

SCAPA demonstrated its commitment to building strong relationships with caregivers and families to support student health needs. Although the submission data for this award was gathered prior to COVID-19, SCAPA’s actions set a solid foundation to help weather the pandemic.
