Who is involved?
Yes! New members are welcome at all meetings. The District 87 Wellness Committee meets after school monthly during the school year. Meetings are rotated among the four schools and central office to create opportunities for student, parent, and staff attendance from each school.
What is the committee’s goal?
The district policy and the Wellness Committee also address national guidelines for foods available in school during the school day and guidelines for reimbursable school meals. These guidelines are closely monitored to maintain alignment with the most recent state and federal regulations.
How does the curriculum address wellness?
The PE, health and family and consumer sciences curriculum strives to teach all students the benefits of wellness and the importance of developing good habits regarding fitness and nutrition. Problem solving, decision-making, communication and teamwork are lifelong skills that are incorporated into daily activities in the PE, health and family and consumer sciences programs.
