Frontier Elementary, a school dedicated to academic excellence recognizes that the physical, social and emotional needs of students must also be addressed in order for students to take full advantage of all academic opportunities.  We know that students who eat healthy foods, engage in physical activity and receive basic health care services will respond better and achieve higher academic outcomes.

Our Frontier Healthy Schools Committee aims at teaching students, staff and the school community about healthy foods, healthy living and maintaining good health.   We would like to extend a hearty thanks to our community for their support of our Healthy School Jam. The students enjoyed participating in activites such as jump ropes, dancing, fire department, electrical and gas safety, car safety, and milk mustache booth. We also had a special guest at Frontier! The students were excited to see Miles the Broncos' mascot kick off the Fuel up to Play
60 program.
