How we accomplish our goals
Partners for School Wellness
Our District has developed a Wellness Policy that is focused on improving the health of students. The policy was developed by the health and wellness advisory council that includes teachers, parents, administrators, and the district nurse.
Sharing the Message of Wellness
One of our goals is to share the message of nutrition and wellness via our department's Web site that emphasizes the importance of nutrition AND fitness. Our site provides information on the nutrition and fitness for teachers, parents, and students, as well as, a variety of learning tools.
Key Areas of our Wellness Policy
Balance is essential for any Wellness Policy. Key areas include:
Who are we? What do we do?
We are Wellness Policy Committee Members, Wellness Site Ambassadors and Executive Champions.
Wellness Policy Committee
The Wellness Policy Committee is a team of students, parents and school district employees who meet as needed to identify issues, school tools and strategies that encourage healthy behaviors and execute a Wellness Policy that creates good, healthy friendly school and work environments. If you are interested in joining our team and/or want to learn more about our goals and what we are doing to promote student wellness, please contact us.

Ours district schools need representatives who promote and train others in Wellness Education. Provided with the information and the tools to serve the community, the Site Ambassador will represent Wellness at school events and train others. The Wellness Site Ambassadors are the eyes and the ears of the school community.
