Garfield Heights High School Receives Grant to Help Give Students a Healthy Start to Their Day

GHHS Physical Education teacher Dale Krzynowek was awarded a $1,000 grant on behalf of the national Milk Mustache “gotmilk?®” Campaign, Borden Dairy Company of Ohio and Fuel Up to Play 60, on Friday, October 7, 2013, as part of the Breakfast Blitz campaign. Sponsored by America’s Dairy Processors, the national campaign seeks to promote eating a healthy breakfast as part of an active lifestyle, by donating $250,000 in grants to schools across the country who participate in Fuel Up to Play 60, an in-school program which promotes nutrition and physical activity. As a result of support from Mr. Krzynowek and students, Garfield Heights High School was one of only 250 schools nationwide to receive enough votes to win the grant. The grant money will be used to encourage students to start their day right with a healthy breakfast, as well as to purchase equipment for students to use in physical education classes. Mr. Krzynowek will also be recognized at a special upcoming event later this month, sponsored by the Cleveland Browns at First Energy Stadium, where he will join other selected winners to learn more about the Fuel Up to Play 60 program, participate in on-field activities, as well as an opportunity to meet Browns offensive lineman Joe Thomas. Congratulations to Mr.
Krzynowek for his award and for helping to promote a healthy, active lifestyle for the Garfield Heights City Schools!
