The School Wellness action group aims to evaluate current practices, discuss best practices, share struggles, and highlight work to foster healthier school-aged children in Calhoun County.
Schools and the education system are huge factors in the healthy habits that children adopt throughout their lifetimes. By promoting healthy practices in childhood, not only can we inspire children to be healthier, but they can become healthier adults, as well.
