Let's talk Health & Wellness


Let's talk Health & Wellness

We would like to take some time to inform you about an event FLACS 1 will be hosting on May 14th, in which all schools and families are invited to attend. This year's 6th Annual Gardening, Health & Wellness Forum will be extra special because of our partners who have graciously offered their time to speak on a panel on what Health & Wellness means to them and to inform you on how to implement healthier options in your daily lives and in the community. Together with our partners we would like to help the Bronx be #not62. 

What is #not62?

In a recent County Health Ranking & Roadmaps Report, the Bronx ranked 62/62 unhealthiest counties in NY. The Bronx ranked in last place. Here at FLACS we are doing our part in promoting for a healthier Bronx through the work of our various Health & Wellness Initiatives such as the Cooking Club, our Hydroponic Towers, rooftop garden, Fit 4 Life NYC and our Yoga program. We as a family of schools are providing our students with healthier ways to be #not62. This year’s event will not only showcase FLACS’ initiatives on promoting Health and Wellness to our students but to our community as well. Let's move up our health ranking and be #not62.

Activities will include a Zumba class, a fitness class with Fit 4 Life instructor Coach T., gardening in our edible garden, face painting and even a cooking demonstration by FLACS 1's very own Chef Bennett. You will have the opportunity to enjoy all of them, if you have the energy! The Forum will conclude with a lunch catered by the FLACS Café. 

By now you should have received your invitation to  FLACS 1's 6th Annual Gardening, Health & Wellness Forum. If not please inquire within your school or check out our Facebook page to find out how to join our mailing list to receive your invitation and RSVP.
