Northwood High School promotes physical activity and better nutrition

Three high schools in NC are participating as “Be Active NC” schools trying to promote more physical activity and better nutrition programs for students and teachers to reduce the nation’s obesity problem. Northwood High School is one of these schools and will participate in the program for the 2011-2012 school year. The school will receive a $2500 Grant if it has over 600 students and 30 percent of its staff participating in the Be Active NC Program. The BANC slogan is: more people, more active, more often!
