We are excited to announce that Fifth Street is in the 9th year of being an UPGRADE school (formerly known as HEROES)!!
Fifth Street Elementary has a continued focus on fostering a culture of wellness for students, families and staff. Studies have shown that healthy students—particularly those who engage in physical activity and healthy eating—are better learners.
In 2010, our school received an Upgrade grant (formerly known as the HEROES Initiative), which provides the tools schools need to offer opportunities for students to win in the classroom through healthy choices and physical activity. Upgrade currently supports 30 schools with evidence-based programs to develop healthy student behaviors for daily success.
