Tonti is proud to be part of the 30/20/10 fitness program.  Each students averages 30 minutes of physical education per day.  Each student receives daily:  20 minutes of recess 

Tonti has been designated a USDA Healthy School Silver Level, and we are continuously making strides to achieve Gold Status.  We have made two overall changes to achieve Silver Level status:  First, Mr. Arriaga hired another PE Teacher, Mr. Donahue; Second, Tonti established a new Healthy Snack and Beverage Policy.  This policy eliminates unhealthy food sales for fundraisers and also discourages students from bringing in less nutritious foods for celebrations.  

As part of our Healthy School Initiative, only healthy foods will be allowed in the school.  This challenges our students to be more creative in the way we celebrate special occasions.  Always using food to celebrate instills the idea in our children that eating foods such as chips, cake and sugary drinks are the only way to celebrate. In general, food should not be used are a reward or punishment because it creates a very strong classical conditioning effect which may prove difficult to break later in life.
