New Richmond Elementary has received the Silver Award from the Ohio Department of Health’s Healthy Ohio program for the 2009-2010 school year.

The Buckeye Best Healthy Schools Awards recognize schools that demonstrate a commitment to the health and wellness of their students and staff through the establishment of programs and policies that foster such goals. These include improving nutrition, increasing physical activity and stopping or preventing the use of tobacco.

“It’s a combination of nutrition education, nutrition in our cafeteria along with our physical education program and our drug abuse education,” said NRE principal Gary Combs. “Last year we achieved the Gold award, this year we got the Silver Award and our goal is to go back up to the Gold next year.”
