Welcome to the EUPISD LifeSPAN Page
Life Sustaining Physical Activity and Nutrition
WHAT IS LifeSPAN? LifeSPAN is a program funded under the education portion of the supplemental nutrition assistance program from the USDA (SNAP-ED). In this program, nutrition facilitators work with classroom teachers to implement fruit and vegetable centered curriculum for all students PreK-5/6. The curriculum that we use is evidence-based, centered around increasing fruit and vegetable consumption and increasing physical activity.
Paula Finfrock: Paula serves as the project director for LifeSPAN. By overseeing the project as a whole, she is in charge of project reporting and communicating with our fiduciaries, the Michigan Fitness Foundation. She provides support for the LifeSPAN Nutrition Facilitators. The program's focus is to help families gain knowledge through evidence-based programming and to increase access to local resources that help them integrate healthy eating and physical activity into their daily life.
Kathryn Hills: Kathryn is our elementary school nutrition facilitator. She teaches the K-5/6th grade students all about the importance of eating fruits and vegetables as well as being physically active.
Cara Ortiz: Cara is our preschool nutrition facilitator. She visits preschool classrooms help students learn about the importance of eating fruits and vegetables as well as being physically active through fun, interactive lessons.
