Gross Schechter designated a Gold Fit-Friendly Worksite
Gross Schechter Day School has been designated a Gold Fit-Friendly Worksite by the American Heart Association. Designed to be a catalyst for positive change in American business, the program “Fit-Friendly” recognizes employers who champion the health of their employees.  According to the American Heart Association, Gross Schechter Day School is currently the only school recognized as Fit Friendly in the Northeast Ohio four county area (Cuyahoga/Geauga/Lake/Medina Counties).
