LPES Becomes a Blue Zones Project Approved™ School

Lake Pointe Elementary School is proud to announce that we have become a Blue Zones Project Approved™ school!

Blue Zones Project® is a community-led well-being initiative designed to make healthy choices easier in Fort Worth through permanent changes to environment, policy, and social networks. When our entire community participates – from worksites and schools to restaurants and grocery stores – the small changes add up to huge benefits for all of us: lowered healthcare costs, improved productivity, and ultimately, a higher quality of life.

Lake Pointe Elementary School is playing an important role in this well-being initiative by achieving Blue Zones Project Approved status. Some of the initiatives we have implemented to earn this designation include implementing healthy fundraisers, integrating nutrition information into lesson plans, and launching the 1,000,000 Luminous Acts of Kindness Challenge.

Your participation in these efforts, such as signing the Blue Zones Personal Pledge, helped us reach this designation. By implementing these healthy evidence-based options, Lake Pointe Elementary School is helping our students and everyone who lives, works and play in Fort Worth live longer, better lives.

Taking the Blue Zones Personal Pledge is just the first step to living a longer, better life. If you took the pledge, you should already be receiving monthly updates about Blue Zones Project activities happening across our community, timely tips for making healthy choices easier, and links to recipes, information, and resources that will help you improve your well-being. You’ll also have the opportunity to participate in variety of activities that will help you move naturally, eat healthier, find your purpose, and stay connected.
