"I believe that the greatest gift you can give your family and the world is a healthy you." Mr. Jamie Placht

Rockhurst High School science teacher Mr. Jamie Placht challenged students today to be more intentional and mindful about what they put in their body and how active they are in their daily life. Through research-based data, Mr. Placht shared with students the psychological and physical impact of health and wellness best practices.
