The Wellness Committee is new this year! Musiki Glover, Silvia Coelho, Nadege Bernadel & Alisha Anglin-Pagán are the chairs.

 

The Mission:  To create and sustain a healthy community, environment, and lifestyle in our school.

To adopt practices and policies that spur the entire school and community to move more & educate one another about healthier food choices.

We do this using science based research helping us to develop an overall wellness lifestyle. Our aim - towards a positive and powerful impact on our school’s health and wellness.

Be on the lookout for:

  • newsletters

  • mental health initiatives

  • picnic play dates

  • healthy snacks

  • lunchbox ideas

Send us your healthy recipe inspirations and we will highlight your family's special dishes!

Special thanks to Laura Corrin, Director of Healthy Kids Club who set the beginning stages for this new ICS Committee.
