Chef Helps Sandtown PTSA Celebrate "Every Kid Healthy Week"
Chef Londyn Green, a finalist on Top Chef Jr., helped Sandtown Middle School celebrate National Every Kid Healthy Week April 22 – April 27. Londyn , a seventh grader at Sandtown Middle, prepared vegan dishes at the PTSA meeting, including mango bruschetta. The week ended with the Sandtown Color Run, an event that saw more than 100 students, parents and community leaders participate. Fulton County Schools (FCS) Board President Linda Bryant, Board Member Kimberly Dove, Area Superintendent Dr. Gyimah Whitaker,Georgia Representative Roger Bruce, and South Fulton Mayor William Edwards, were all in attendance.
Principal Estella Cook, who welcomed the community April 27, celebrated the week. “Sandtown Middle School is excited to shine a light on healthy living for our scholars and families,” said Principal Cook. “During National Every Kid Healthy Week, we had the pleasure of having Londyn Green, one of our very own scholars, share her tips for eating healthy and delicious meals.”
Green’s efforts to promote healthy living are right in line with the goals of the Sandtown Parent Teacher Association (PTSA). “The Sandtown PTSA is working to promote family engagement within the Sandtown community,” said PTSA President Tara Surratt. The successful Sandtown Color Run April 27 featured students, parents and community leaders, all running to benefit the school. Beginning with a blast of colored powder in cups held by runners, the Sandtown Color Run followed a tradition. “Color Runs have been taking place throughout the United States and other countries for years,” said Surratt. “We thought this would be a fun way to engage our community and raise money to support activities such as Field Day, Teacher Appreciation, and more!”
