Warren Consolidated Schools is committed to creating a healthy school environment

The Board of Education recognizes that good nutrition and regular physical activity affect the health and well-being of the District's students. Research concludes that there is a positive correlation between a student's health and well-being and his/her ability to learn. Schools can play an important role in the developmental process allowing students to establish their health and nutrition habits by providing nutritious meals and snack, supporting the development of good eating habits, and promoting increased physical activity both in and out of school.

The effort to support the students' development of healthy behaviors and habits with regard to eating and exercise cannot be accomplished by the schools alone. It will be necessary for not only the staff, but also parents and the public at large to be involved in a community-wide effort to promote, support, and model such healthy behaviors and habits.

Health Around the Corner

Powered by GDAHC and Macomb Partners in Health

What is Macomb Partners in Health? Macomb PIH Logo Macomb Partners in Health was formed in March 2015 to improve care management and reduce the rate of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and stroke in Eastpointe, Roseville and Warren in Macomb County. Chronic diseases, when unmanaged, are detrimental to the health and livelihood of individuals; affect the emotional and economic well-being of their families and their community; have an economic impact on the productivity of a population. Furthermore, unmanaged chronic diseases increase health care cost for consumers, employers, and government.


Here are 7 simple ways to live better:

heart smart
  • Avoid smoking and using tobacco products.
  • Be physically active every day.
  • Eat a heart-healthy diet.
  • Keep a healthy weight.
  • Keep your blood pressure healthy.
  • Keep your total cholesterol healthy.
