Daily Herald report

The Illinois Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (IAHPERD) presented a banner designating Blue Ribbon recognition for the health program at District 96 Twin Groves Middle School.

Evaluators characterized the Twin Groves program as exemplary. Only 10 schools in Illinois earned Blue Ribbon recognition, and only three of those schools honored were middle schools.

Visitors from IAHPERD met onsite last winter with health teacher Ben Leven and thoroughly scrutinized the District 96 school's health program and Leven's teaching methods. The evaluators were particularly complimentary of Leven's website for students, recommending it as a model to health teachers statewide.

The Twin Groves health teacher credits the quality of the middle school's health program to students and staff and "years of planning." He enjoys finding new ways to use technology to connect with kids and encourages his students to ask themselves the question "What if?" when they are faced with making an important choice.
