Nutrition

“Nutrition can make a Great Athlete Good, or a Good Athlete Great.”

To take athletics to the next level, Champion Schools will now incorporate Nutrition into our athletic department. It has been proven by the American Dietetic Association that healthy eating not only allows a student to perform sports at a higher level, but also allows for better concentration in the classroom, better test grades, and creates an overall healthy lifestyle.

We have many great things planned for your child this year. These include incorporating a multivitamin, providing post-workout reduced- fat chocolate milk, revamping the school lunch program, and more. These changes will not only allow your child to compete at a higher level, it will also help your child thrive in the classroom.

We encourage you to not only allow your child to make these healthy changes at school, but also follow these healthy steps at home:

Hydration

To stay fully hydrated, each individual should consume at least 0.5-1.0 ounce/pound of body weight of plain water each day.

Sleep

Getting the proper amount of sleep is just as vital to health as nutrition and exercise. Each student should strive to get 8-12 hours of sleep each night.

Calorie Intake

Each child has a unique amount of calories that should be consumed based on gender, height, weight, age, and activity level. These calories should be broken down into 40% Carbohydrates, 30% Protein, and 30% Fats.

Healthy Snacks

To keep your child fueled through school, fitness, and other activities, you should incorporate healthy snacks at least twice a day. Healthy snacks should consist of carbohydrates and protein.

We, at Champion Schools, are very excited to offer your child a more complete approach to athletics using highly competitive sports, elite sports training, and nutrition education.

Important Announcement: Superintendent COVID-19 Update (05/05/2020)

Champion Schools

Letter from the Superintendent 

May 5, 2020

Dear Champion Families,

I hope this letter finds you and ALL of your loved ones safe and well. We are all happy to hear that Governor Doug Ducey has announced the gradual re-opening of Arizona. In order for our economy to re-open, it is essential to open schools.  Superintendent Kathy Hoffman  is very optimistic that Arizona Schools will be opening for the upcoming School Year 2021. 

Report Cards and Awards are being prepared for distribution via Pick UP and US Mail. We are very proud of all of our Students (and Parents) as we transitioned to Online/ At-Home Learning.

Meal Program will continue throughout the Summer, with FREE Breakfast and Lunch being available for Pick Up, Monday-Friday 8:00-9:30am.   

We HOPE to have a FREE Summer Camp Program June 8-11, 15-18 and 22-25, 

Monday-Thursday 8am-noon. This is dependent on the advice of the Governor and the results of the pending reopening. You may contact the school to reserve a space in the Summer Program. We will keep you posted. 

We plan to open for School Year 2021, with the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL on July 27th. (unless closures continue)  What will school ‘look like’ after this COVID19 pandemic? Here are some important things to consider as you prepare for your children to return to school.

  1. Students should be prepared to Social Distance at School This means that children will not be sitting right next to each other, keeping space between each other in line, during lunch and recess. Playground equipment will not be used until we are sure that there is no risk.
  2. Students  should be up-to-date on their IMMUNIZATIONS.  The following link describes how providers can maintain Childhood Immunizations During COVID-19 Pandemic https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/pediatric-hcp.html. For more information on where to go for Immunizations: www.WeArePublicHealth.org The Roosevelt Immunization Clinic has been and will continue to operate as a WALK-IN  clinic while following social distancing and cleaning measures.
  3. Talk to your children about COVID19 Here is some helpful guidance from the CDC.https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/talking-with-children.html
  4. Students should bring a small personal bottle of sanitizer to school, and will be allowed to use it anytime. We also have sanitizer “magic soap” available in classrooms.
  5. Check for signs of illness if a student has a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, call your healthcare provider and keep your child at home and away from others as much as possible 

Here are some additional Resources provided by Maricopa County Public Health

  1. For up-to-date COVID-19 information in Maricopa County, resources and guides to assist you in communicating with your families/community visit  www.maricopa.gov/coronavirus
