Step Up to the 2018 Community Challenge

About the Challenge!

  • This year PSJA ISD is joining forces with the cities of Pharr, San Juan, and Alamo to take on the It's Time Texas  Community Challenge sponsored by H-E-B! The Challenge is an 8-week competition that unites and mobilizes schools, businesses, organizations, community members, and mayors toward the common goal of transforming their community’s health. This year the challenge will be taking place from Jan. 8 through March 4, 2018.

    It is a great opportunity to grow even closer as a school/district family, plus it helps us make healthy choices and teach our students to do the same. If our community earns the most points in our size category, we will receive an $1,800 grant to put towards future health-related projects and bragging rights!
