Wellness Committee

A Note from the Wellness Committee: April’s Wellness Initiative is “Let’s Get Moving!” and we’re ready to learn about moving our bodies for physical health. Students will learn about cardiac health and the importance of aerobic exercise for lifelong, healthy habits. Parents can help by talking to your child about exercise and modeling our wellness goals by getting outside and being physically active with them. As the weather is improving, we hope your activity levels are too!
