NBPS Wellness Committee

The aim of a school wellness program is to support and enhance the health and well being of students and families by improving the school environment, policies, and educational opportunities.

Schools have more influence on the lives of young people than any other social institution except the family and provides a setting in which friendship networks develop, socialization occurs, and norms that govern behavior are developed and reinforced.” —Healthy People 2010, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
