Wellness Week Needs YOU!
Wellness Week will be the last week of October and we need YOUR help to make it happen. The week will include fun and educational activities for students on social, emotional, intellectual and physical wellness.
There are volunteer opportunities both before the school day starts, mid-morning, during lunch/recess hours, and at the end of the school day. You can play a game during recess, pass out food samples, stamp cards during Mileage Club, display screen free pledge cards, or lead all-school stress relief and stretching exercises over the PA.
