Join Our Wellness Committee - The Webster County Board of Education Office Child Nutrition and Wellness wishes to extend an invitation to join our Wellness Committee. Our Wellness Policy promotes the well-documented link between nutrition, physical activity, and learning. It is the Wellness Committee’s role to help schools ensure students establish and maintain healthy eating and physical activity patterns that will last a lifetime.
The committee meets biannually to discuss important issues within our school system and serve as resources for implementing policies and procedures related to the health and fitness of students. We always welcome new members, whether they are parents, students, school personnel, or other interested individuals within our community. So please pass on the word and let us know if you are interested.
