SAFE & HEALTHY SCHOOLS COMMITTEE
The focus of the Safe and Healthy Schools Committee is to encourage children to have a voice in leading our school community in maintaining a healthy lifestyle both at school and at home. We strongly believe that healthy eating, physical activity, and taking care of mental wellbeing are three major factors that lead student's to improved academic achievement. Through our initiatives at school and home, we can build a strong foundation for our children to live healthy lives.
