School Wellness

Mission: To encourage lifelong commitments to physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual well-being among the entire school community.


A message from the ISD #4 Wellness educators, we want the best for our staff, students and families. We work hard to ensure that students' minds and bodies are ready for learning each and every day. We will work to encourage healthy eating and physical activity, helping to reduce health risks and improve overall well-being in and outside the classroom.

Children benefit mentally, physically, socially and academically by eating right and getting regular exercise. Healthy kids perform better on tests, behave better, are more focused in class and have a higher self-esteem. 

The school wellness team will provide staff with available resources to optimize their own health and also resources to utilize in their classrooms and out on the playground. We will provide to you, as parents, links and resources right here on this page where you can gather important information, recipes and things to do in the area leading to a healthy family! Together, we will lead students to lifelong success and a roadmap to a healthy lifestyle.

Wishing you all the best!
