Notre Dame Athletics is partnering with the South Bend Community School Corp. (SBCSC) to promote healthy habits among students at Studebaker Elementary School, home to the district’s Head Start and special needs programs for children ages 0-5.

“Be Like the Irish” is a poster campaign featuring images of Notre Dame student-athletes from a variety of men’s and women’s teams promoting one of three core messages: “Brush your teeth!”, “Clean your plate!” or “Wash your hands!”

Studebaker students eat breakfast and lunch and practice hand washing and tooth brushing at school as part of Head Start and in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The posters help generate excitement around these tasks, with dynamic photos of the student-athletes in uniform, in addition to green shamrocks and the Notre Dame monogram in blue and gold.
