The mission of the John C. Daniels’ School Wellness Team (formerly known as PAW: Physical Activity and Wellness) is to improve the health and learning of all of our students. All school wellness programs are led by a designated facilitator and include administrative staff, teachers and parents who meet monthly to identify and address school health issues, promote and implement wellness policies/recommendations and collaborate with staff to coordinate school wellness initiatives. Some of our previous initiatives include: Health Heroes, Zumba for a Cause, our school garden (in collaboration with Common Ground School) and healthier snack alternatives during Rise and Shine donated by Trader Joe’s.

Soon we will be partnering with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, an organization founded by the American Heart Association and Clinton Foundation. As a result of our already established School Wellness Team, we qualify to participate in their Healthy Schools Program (HSP). The HSP helps schools improve physical education, health education and nutrition. More information will follow once our school begins working with the program.
