Wellness Grants

Wellness in schools is no longer about simply having a healthy snack policy. As anxiety levels in students across the country increase, the social and emotional well-being of children is getting more attention. The District has adopted a purposeful approach to nourishing Six Dimensions of Wellness, and SEF supports these efforts.
