CRANA (CRanberry Advocates Nutrition & Activity)  is our student wellness team who plan and organize healthy events throughout the school year. This club brainstorms and votes on ideas to make our district healthier and also volunteer their time to make sure it happens.

CASD will be incorporating WELLNESS WEDNESDAY on the fourth Wednesday of every month this school year at the Jr & Sr High School. There will be a student spotlight and also a staff member who are recognized each month for choosing a healthy lifestyle. 

Both winners will both receive a Dunham's or Subway gift card.

Students will start the day hearing an interesting fact about their health after the pledge and will also be entered into a drawing during lunch if they taste test the healthy item of the day.  All teachers will be encouraged to lead a brain break & get students up and moving.
