Health and Wellness “Health is our First Wealth” Emerson


Health and Wellness Committee

Our goal is to promote a positive healthy school environment that supports good nutrition and regular physical exercise as part of lifelong learning for students, faculty and staff, and parents.  Our committee is composed of administrators, food director, teachers, school nurses, parents and community members who meet monthly.
In response to growing national concerns about health especially overweight and obesity the committee developed a district-wide policy for Nutrition and Physical Activity in the schools in 2005. This policy is presently under revision. Each of our schools has a procedure for the application of the policy. All are available for your review on the link to the left.  Other helpful links are also listed. Additional school nutrition and physical activity information will be available in school newsletters, on school bulletin boards, through your PTO and on this web site.  New members and new ideas are always welcome.
