OrganWise Guys

This program offers the evidence-based OrganWise Guys curriculum for K - 2nd-grade students at elementary schools across the state.  A brief, one-time training is provided to the classroom teachers and then a fun kickoff assembly is held for the students to introduce the OrganWise characters!  8 to 12 classroom presentations are provided throughout the year along with companion activity booklets, Wisercise calendars, and a Food of the Month Club kit for the school cafeteria.      

Students learn to name and locate body parts and understand how each relates to their overall health and quality of life.  This comprehensive nutrition and physical activity program enhances the school's efforts to create a healthier school environment and helps improve the health status of participants through regular education and activity.  Hospital health educators visit the school four times throughout the school year to provide classroom lessons.  The classroom teacher provides remaining lessons during the year. 

  • OrganWise Guys lessons align with many Arkansas Department of Education standards for Physical Education and Health & Wellness instruction.
  • OrganWise Guys is a comprehensive elementary school nutrition and physical activity program that shows significant improvements in children’s weight, blood pressure, and standardized test scores.
  • OrganWise Guys will enhance any school’s efforts to create a healthier school environment and improve the health status of participants by encouraging kids to become a part of the solution.
