Did you know that RI Healthy Schools Coalition provides FREE services to all 36 RI school districts, plus charter and state schools as well? 
(That’s over 142,000 students!)
Will you contribute to our end-of-year campaign? DONATE HERE
We need community support. Your contribution will allow us to continue our work and  maximize the impact we have within our school communities. 
A nominal $36 tax-deductible donation is like giving $1 to help each RI school district!
After a year of dormancy (lack of money!), RIHSC was revived in January of this year with funding from Blue Cross & Blue Shield of RI, and we’re pretty proud of what’s been accomplished this first year:

We directly assisted 31 of our 36 school districts - maybe yours!  We participated in district wellness committee meetings all over RI and provided resources, guidance and encouragement for wellness initiatives.


We brought back the Breakfast for School Leaders Symposium in September, which was attended by so many of you!  This annual event provides a forum for school and community leaders to learn about what’s new and share what’s working.


We developed rihsc.org with all of YOU in mind, and filled it with a wide variety of resources to keep your schools healthy and thriving, sent out monthly newsletters keeping you up-to-date on school wellness information, grant and training opportunities, and established RIHSC Facebook and Twitter accounts to communicate more immediately with you, our school wellness champions, when we have something interesting to share.

We engaged many community partners, who have become valued RIHSC member organizations, and worked with them to bring you workshops and trainings on such important topics as recess, healthy fundraising and healthy cooking 
Please give what you can – there’s so much more to do! 
Here’s to a healthy 2016!!
