The West School Physical Education program recognizes that school plays a critical role in creating a healthy environment for the prevention of childhood obesity and for combating problems associated with poor nutrition and physical activity. To support this, the physical education program is going to provide its students with an exciting wellness program called Team Nutrition.
This innovative and interdisciplinary approach to health education will encourage students to think about how health behaviors are interrelated. It will also teach students about nutrition and physical activity while building skills and competencies on how health applies to language arts, math, science, social studies and physical education. The introduction to this wellness program at the West School will provide the students with the knowledge and skills to develop lifelong health and wellness.
