Image with words about wellness and being healthy.Let’s make Cumberland County a healthier county! The Office of Health Services in partnership with the School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) is hosting a Year of Wellness. 

Parents, check out the new wellness website to receive fitness and nutritional tips to share with your child and learn about up and coming parent wellness sessions that will be provided throughout the district.  Learn more about the district wellness policy and ways the PTSA can help.

We encourage all schools to set goals to creating a healthier learning environment. According to the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, studies show that healthy students get better grades, attend school more often and behave better in class. Today, one in three children and adolescents, ages 2 to 19 are overweight or obese – triple the rate from one generation ago.

The wellness website has great suggestions of healthier ways to raise funds for schools. Stay up to date and get involved with upcoming fitness events and opportunities such as the Get Fit-Healthy Staff Wellness Program. A healthy staff is essential as well so take advantage of the Staff Fitness Breaks to promote staff wellness. Schools are encouraged to share their health and wellness events and participation in wellness observances by sending pictures and promotional flyers to Angela Hurley, Healthy Eating and Active Living Liaison at Angelahurley@ccs.k12.nc.us. Let us showcase your efforts of promoting healthier lifestyles.
