Healthy Schools

Dunstan is proud to be a Jeffco Healthy School!  This means we have wellness liaisons, a wellness committee, and implement wellness goals each year.  Through our healthy schools work and the Jeffco Generations strategic model, we support wellness in our school and the connection between health and learning.

Dunstan was recognized as a 2017 Healthy Schools Champion by the Colorado Education Initiative (CEI)!  Every year, CEI's Healthy School Champions Program recognizes Colorado schools for their success at creating a healthy school environment and implementing effective school health efforts.  CEI singles out schools that have excelled at creating health and wellness programs that support student learning.  Check out the Lakewood Sentinel Article on Dunstan's award and congratulations Patriots!

Additionally, on Tuesday and Thursday morning during advise, students who have all passing grades can participate in open gym.  We believe in exercise as a critical element of learning, and what better way than to start the day than getting oxygen to the brain!  Advise classes rotate through physical education every few weeks for some fun competition and skill building.  Our physical education teachers use technology by having students wear heart rate monitors and pedometers in certain classes.  We're also excited about our Smart Fit Girls class, which is a nation-wide curriculum targeted specifically for teenage girls.

At Dunstan, we SPARK up your student's life with authentic physical fitness, which is why we are a recognized Healthy School !
