The committee’s overall goal is to help students and staff improve their health with opportunities for movement and healthy nutritional choices The committee will explore indoor and outdoor movement opportunities and explore ways to increase staff and students knowledge related to their food choices.
2015/2016: The Wellness Committee applied for and received a grant from the Fuel Up to Play 60 nutrition/physical activity program. We will be implementing the grant in the next few months. The grant will offer the students an opportunity to try a nutritious snack, learn more about healthy food choices and a way to increase daily movement with 2 of Edgewood’s Zumba certified teachers. Contact one of the committee members if you would like to be involved.
