Wellness Challenges and Solutions
More than 300 middle school students and teachers from 74 schools across the state participated in regional Super Power Summits during October, 2010, where they learned how to bring out the super powers inside them by choosing healthy foods and being physically activity. They also were empowered to go back to their own schools with new ideas to help make their schools healthier.
Wellness Challenges and Solutions, a handout listing common school wellness challenges along with suggested solutions compiled from middle school students who attended the Super Power Summits. The handout can be shared with students, administrators, school wellness committees and others in a school or community to help implement some of the student suggested solutions to further school wellness efforts.
