How we accomplish our goals
Partners for School Wellness
Our District has a Student Wellness Policy that calls for a Student Wellness Committee that is focused on improving the health of students. It is comprised of teachers, parents, administrators, community partners, school food service and the district nurse. The committee develops and implements a Student Wellness Plan that focuses on the student wellness programs already in place, collaborating across departments and grade levels for purposeful wellness intiatives. Additionally, complimentary goals are set to enhance the path guiding students toward healthly lifestyles now and on into adulthood. The Plan is evaluated and revised every 3 years.

If you are interested in providing feedback to this committee, please contact Judi Hunter at [email protected].

One of our goals is to share the message of nutrition and wellness via our Polar Bear Cafe'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.
