May & June Healthy Schools News

Happy Summer! 

Welcome to our Healthy Schools News Blog! 
We will be sending out monthly blog posts as a means to share information related to all things health and wellness. This may include but is not limited to professional development opportunities, calendar of events (school and district-wide), highlights of your work and sharing of ideas, deadlines, etc. There will be a link at the bottom of every post for you to communicate information that you'd like us to include in upcoming posts and highlight the great things you're doing! 

We cannot thank you enough for your hard work and tremendous efforts to improve the health and wellness of your staff, students, and school community. We look forward to an amazing year ahead, but for now, enjoy your summer and take time for you!
