Chatham County Schools and the Chatham County Public Health Department have collaborated to create a program called the Healthy Habits Campaign. This program provides quick and easy health lessons to K-5 teachers to use in their classrooms, and helps each K-5 and K-8 school in the county highlight and promote healthy living. Each month has been assigned a different healthy habit as its focus, and the schedule and related materials are included below. If you have questions about this program, or if you’d like to let us know about other good links and lessons to share, please contact Anna Stormzand, Health Promotion Coordinator, at or (919) 545-8445.

Below each month, click on “K-2 lesson plans” or “3-5 lesson plans” for that month’s packets of lessons, or “links” for other resources related to that month’s healthy habit.
