Coffin Elementary School in Brunswick Celebrates 5-2-1-0 | Community Spirit
Students and staff of <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 />Coffin Elementary School in Brunswick recently held a Kindness Assembly during which they educated each other and celebrated healthy living. In partnership with Mid Coast Hospital and Let’s Go!, the school focused on the following messages: 5 or more fruits and vegetables per day, 2 hours or less of recreational screen time, 1 hour or more of physical activity and ZERO sweetened drinks. These photos show staff having fun with a fruit and vegetable parade, and Mrs Bradley’s first grade instructing the assembly about the importance of reducing screen time. The 5-2-1-0 program is now active in many schools, early childhood centers and pediatric practices throughout Maine and the country. Over the past four years Mid Coast Hospital has sponsored and supported the program in the Midcoast region.
