Healthy School Designation

Dunstan is proud to be a Jeffco Healthy School!  This means we have wellness liaisons, a wellness committee, and implement wellness goals each year.  Through our healthy schools work and the Jeffco Generations strategic model, we support wellness in our school and the connection between health and learning.

  • All students have the opportunity to be physically active through Spark and open gym.
  • Our school continues to use heart rate monitors to help students learn how to track their own heart rate and fitness levels, as well as dedicate themselves to a healthy lifestyle. 
  • Our students and staff benefit from our beautiful facility and location which is optimal to enjoy the outdoors!  Our physical education classes frequently use our grounds to promote healthy lifestyles.  

Yoga and Mindfulness at Dunstan

Jamie Leeburg, a PE teacher at Dunstan, and her teammate, Mark Fabian, have had success with Move Through Yoga.  Jamie’s testimonial is below.

“When we first opted into the Move Through Yoga program first semester, I was slightly concerned. Yoga is definitely out of my (our) comfort zone and I have never considered myself particularly flexible. In spite of my (our) trepidation, we jumped in with both feet. Our instructor is amazing! We learn from her the first hour and then Mark and I take turns teaching the lesson to the rest of our classes throughout the day. We talk to our students about the importance of balance, flexibility and core strength and how important those are for physical fitness and every day activities. Our students are embracing the practice and we celebrate Yoga Wednesday each week.”
