PHARR – Pharr-San Juan-Alamo ISD (PSJA) teamed up with the City of Pharr for the It’s Time Texas Community Challenge, sponsored by H-E-B, as an effort to encourage staff and parents to take part in healthy activities.  The challenge is a 12-week competition that started at the beginning of the year and will run until March 29. As part of the challenge, PSJA ISD has provided a variety of free fitness classes every week.  

It’s Time Texas is a nonprofit organization that focuses on improving the health in the state by mobilizing schools, businesses, organizations and the community toward the common goal of transforming their health. In addition to motivating the community to live healthier lives, the winning community at the end of the challenge will win a $1,800 grant for health-related projects while school districts will receive a trophy and special recognition.  PSJA ISD is currently placed 3rd statewide.
