Healthy Kids, Healthy Minds – Welcome to the ESS Wellness Committee Web Site

Welcome! The ESS ES PTA is pleased to present the ESS Wellness Committee, a newly formed committee aimed at working collaboratively with parents, teachers, and administration and others to enhance the wellness of our entire community. We plan to examine what our students are eating and drinking, how physically active our students are and identify ways that we all can be healthier in body and in mind. Study after study shows that the better we treat our bodies through healthy food and drink, the better our minds and behavior tend to be. Our goals in our inaugural year are to assess ESS’ cafeteria program, provide educational information to the whole community, and make recommendations to administration and others as needed. We on the committee welcome your involvement. If you are interested, please join us at one of our committee meetings. Email us for more info: esswellnesscommittee@gmail.com. Learn more about the ESS Wellness Committee.

The purpose of this web site is to share and promote the activities and events organized by the committee; and to provide resources on healthy eating to students, staff, and families in the ESS ES community. See our Newsletters and Family Resources.
