Are you building bridges across campus? Bridge building is one of the best ways to support student and staff wellness within the walls of the school building and the community at large. How can the physical education teacher help combat childhood hunger? How can the classroom teacher support school nutrition and physical education programs? How can families and community members advocate for the district’s wellness policy? Come ready to learn, discuss and brainstorm ways we can all extend a hand around campus to ensure our students are healthy and happy during the school day and beyond.
Educators, Administrators, Other School Staff, Community Partners
At the end of this session, participants:
1) Will be able to identify various components of the Local Wellness Policy final rule.
2) Will be able to identify at least two ways in which they can support those components.
3) Will be able to identify at least two colleagues outside their own department whom they might forge a new relationship with in order to strengthen the wellness environment around campus.
