In memory of Linda Rogers Bailey, November 30, 1957 to July 7, 2017.  The driving force behind the Council WeCan! program, Linda brought so much activity, community service, enjoyment and healthy eating to our youth.  Linda will be dearly missed, by her friends, family and all who knew her.  As she lovingly referred to the students enrolled in the WeCan! program, "HER KIDS" will miss her and her enthusiasm greatly.  Rest in Peace, Linda.

ARE YOU EXCITED FOR SUMMER?!

Well, so are we!  The summer WeCan! will begin right after the school free lunch program on Mondays and Wednesdays at 12:30 pm until 2:00 pm.  Please meet near the front entrance of Council elementary School.  Make sure your K-6th grade student is slathered in sunscreen, wearing play clothes and brings a water bottle.  We drink a lot of water and do a lot of water activities during the heat of the summer, so your kiddo may be soggy when you pick them up. We are looking forward to seeing you!

ACHC We Can! program was honored to have a story featured on the national We Can! website, titled:
We Can!® Fun Is Contagious in Idaho Community read about HERE

We Can! (Ways to Enhance Children's Activity & Nutrition) is a national movement designed to give parents, caregivers, and entire communities a way to help children 5 to 13 years of age stay at a healthy weight.  In support of this program, ACHC stays active at the Elementary School.  During summer months the program runs in conjunction with the free/reduced hot lunch program.
We Can! also offers organizations, community groups, and health professionals a centralized resource to promote a healthy weight in youth through community outreach, partnership development, and media activities that can be adapted to meet the needs of diverse populations. Science-based educational programs, support materials, training opportunities, and other resources are available to support programming for youth, parents, and families in the community can be seen HERE.
