Logan Health’s Foundation and School-Based Services awarded $500 grants to 19 educators at Flathead Valley schools this April. The Healthy Classrooms Grant provides funding to local schools to aid in the creation or improvement of student-centered and staff-related healthy living initiatives.

“We deeply value the opportunity to partner with educators throughout the Flathead Valley, working together to turn their classroom visions into reality and spark new learning initiatives,” said Brittany Coburn, NP-C, Logan Health School-Based Health Center Program Director.

The awarded grants will fund projects, such as sensory spaces for special education programs, a yoga series for faculty and staff, new athletic and playground equipment, in-classroom cooking tools and nutrition education curriculum, after-school fitness classes, heart rate monitors for students for physical education, and social-emotional health curriculum resources.

“The Healthy Classrooms Grant is an investment in the health and well-being of our children’s futures,” said Joe McClafferty, Logan Health Foundation president. “We’re honored to support our educators in empowering their students with health-conscious habits, paving the way for a generation equipped with the tools to thrive physically, mentally, and academically. And we’re grateful for the generosity of Logan Health employees and the support of our community donors, whose contributions make these grants a reality.”
