Healthy Snacks and Healthy Minds!

As you know, we strive for a healthy lifestyle here at PS 69 Journey Prep! 

"Educating Minds and Hearts" is our mission at PS 69 Journey Prep. Our goal is for all of our students to be academically and socially successful. Research shows that children who eat foods/snacks that are high in sugar and fat, do not perform well academically.

In an effort to provide students with the healthiest environment, we make every effort to help our students stay physically fit through programs we have specifically designed. Your child participates ion physical exercise every day, such as recess, or physical education class. Our Fan 4 Kids program teaches healthy nutrition and physical fitness to our younger students. 

As our partner in your child's education, we need your support! We are encouraging parents to provide ONLY healthy snacks for school.

FREE BREAKFAST is served every morning from 7:30 AM to 8:05 AM. Please make sure your child arrives early enough to eat breakfast.
