Physical Health, Wellness and Nutrition Program

After School Fitness
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 2:45-3:45 p.m. Ask a teacher if you are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity to get fit and earn credit!

Appleton Central High School is committed to total student success. Non-chemically processed foods, low in fat, salt, sugar, and fresh fruits and vegetables are a basis for the program. Fresh water is available throughout the day. Objectives of the program include having the students gain thorough knowledge of the integral role a healthy diet plays in maintaining body and mind. Students are exposed to the understanding of the possibility of an improved quality of life that each person can achieve with increased energy and stamina, and understanding the important role that good nutrition and physical fitness play in preventing life-threatening diseases.

A well-nourished student makes for a more engaged, active participant in the classroom. Nutrition time is used as an opportunity to practice social skills, develop appropriate peer-to-peer communication skills, review social etiquette, and generally provide time for rapport building between peers and staff.

The Nutrition Program is considered part of our regular school day and all attendance/truancy practices apply. 

Students are not to bring in candy, soda, sport drinks etc. If brought to school they will be disposed of. Students may bring a clear empty water bottle, free of any labels, to fill at school.
