YISD has implemented the CATCH program as it's coordinated school health program because of it's coordination of health messages between the classroom, physical education program, school nutrition program and home. CATCH teaches children to become more active, make healthful decisions and to create positive changes in their school and home environment that support these decisions.
Thanks to the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and the CATCH Global Foundation, YISD will be implementing the Ray and the Sunbeatables™: A Sun Safety Curriculum with all our PreK - 1st grade students. This program was developed by the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. The curriculum uses superhero characters Ray and the Sunbeatables and their sun safe superpowers to educate teachers, parents, and children about sun protection.
