Activities included BOWLING for students

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.

Beginning the week of January 15th, 2018 We Can! WILL ONLY BE HELD ON MONDAYS FROM 4-5PM. This change is temporary, and we will go back to our normal schedule of Mondays and Wednesdays 4-5:30pm after basketball is finished --beginning the week of February 19th.

Thank you for your understanding,

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.
