"Taking Your Wellness Council

to the Next Level"

Congratulations on your decision to take action to improve the health and well-being of your students and employees!

School wellness is one of the fastest growing areas of interest in the world of education today.  Much research has been done in recent years to demonstrate the relationship between poor health and loss of productivity in staff and  lower academic achievement in students.  Unhealthy behaviors have resulted in an unprecedented growth in obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.

A wellness committee of school/district employees who represent the entire employee population can be a valuable tool in your efforts.  They communicate to you what other employees and students are thinking, feeling, and saying.  They communicate to their staff and students what the wellness program is about, and why they should be involved.  Committee members can help staff events, distribute materials, and collect data.  They should be the arms, legs, eyes, and ears of the program, providing valuable insight.

The Pennsylvania State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, Inc (PSAHPERD) is a non-profit (501 c 3) education association working to promote quality programs and provide professional development in the disciplines it represents.
