It's Time Texas Community Challenge

Coppell ISD’s Student Health Advisory Council (SHAC), in partnership with the City of Coppell (through their Living Well in Coppell program), is once again encouraging parent participation in the ITT (It’s Time Texas) Community Wellness Challenge.

The statewide Challenge, sponsored by HEB, runs from January 9 through March 31 and involves school districts and communities across Texas demonstrating physical, nutritional or personal wellness behaviors. Wellness activities, which qualify, can be as simple as: 

  • Walking or jogging around your neighborhood
  • Cooking or eating a healthy meal
  • Working out at home, the CORE, YMCA, Senior Center or a local fitness club
  • Throwing a Frisbee or kicking a soccer ball at the park
  • Shopping at the Coppell Farmers Market
  • Joining “Walk to School Wednesdays”
  • Helping out at the School or Community Gardens
  • Meditation or yoga for stress relief
  • Walking your dog
  • Playing with your kids in the yard or at a park
  • Or anything else that contributes to your physical, nutritional or personal wellness

The SHAC leadership team, Coppell ISD’s superintendent, principals, and teachers districtwide have pledged their participation – now we need YOU to join the effort! All you need to do is register, then take a photo of your activity and post it on www.ittcommunitychallenge.com.  

We have won for the past two years, and our goal for the 2017 Challenge is to help Coppell ISD’s kids win a “Threepeate” through increased participation and uploads over last year.
