Healthy Youth Pursuing Excellence
HYPE (Healthy Youth Pursuing Excellence) is a peer-to-peer initiative where select students serve as health ambassadors for peers, staff and parents of BPE. They assume the role for the entire school year and are selected based on their ability to demonstrate a commitment to and passion for encouraging their peers to adopt healthy behaviors. They are challenged to be Healthy Youth Pursuing Excellence in everything they do.
This club is for students in grades 3-5. The purpose of HYPE is to educate all students in Pre-K through 5th grade on the importance of making healthy decisions where they learn, live, play and thrive. The HYPE program focuses on four areas: leadership, advocacy, healthy choices and teamwork. Club activities consist of discussions, games, and other opportunities for students to build social skills. HYPE participants also use club time to plan healthy and fun activities for campus-wide events.
