CATCH’s impact on children in multiple settings throughout their school is multiplied when messages are reinforced at home, too. The CATCH Program parent materials complement what students are learning about in school. Additionally, the family component encourages parents to learn about promoting healthy living skills, role model healthy habits for their children, and reinforce healthy living in school and at home.
The CATCH family materials provide resources for parents to be involved in their children’s healthy learning, such as letters to send home to parents, talking points for parent meetings, and a guide to host healthy family fun events. We know that every community is unique, and CATCH strives to give all parents and family/community members the tools to create and sustain healthy habits at home and in the community.
