Healthy Living

The New York City Department of Education's School Wellness Council is a group of parents, students, school staff, and community members who work together and with the school administration to promote a healthy school community. The DOE Wellness Policy encourages all schools to have a School Wellness Council. Upon the erection of our School Wellness Council, there will be meetings at our school to help students with:

Ensuring our school provides high-quality physical and health education

Ensuring our school is following the DOE Wellness Policy

Encouraging our students to eat healthier snack options

Planting a school garden and/or working with a local community garden 

Promoting physical activity clubs and organizing fitness events events

Promoting the importance of healthy food

Promoting inclusivity and diversity in general

 

If you have some ideas that you would like to share on how to help your school become more healthy, please let, Ms. Pierre-Louis, the Sustainability Coordinator know.
