The New Albany Schools encourage student wellness. We recognize the importance of making healthy lifestyle choices, including physical activity and good nutrition. Research has shown that healthy eating habits and physical activity are important factors that improve student performance in the classroom. Additionally, good nutrition and physical activity reduce the incidence of obesity and obesity related illnesses that affect so many children today.
