Centennial Wellness Committee

The WC is working on some great new projects within the district to help us met our 2013-14 goals.  Our goals this year are:

·      Wellness Committee visibility and communication within schools and the community
·      Staff Wellness Promotion

·      Healthy Eating education, its impact on chronic diseases such as Diabetes, and continued healthy eating promotions
·      District and Community resources for physical activity, healthy foods, clinics, and events.

Butler Creek and CHS are looking at how to provide more staff wellness opportunities through an after school workout group.  Are you interested in being part of a staff exercise group? Are you interested in teaching one?  Let the WC know!  We would love your help and support in creating a healthy, happy staff!

Dining Services Present: Local Lunches!

Centennial was awarded $84,393.45 (WOW!) to continue the Farm to School program serving local Oregon foods twice a month in our cafeterias.  We are creating scratch-cooked lunches that feature low processed, whole foods with a focus on yummy healthy lunches for students and staff.  This is a TWO year program so keep and eye out for new lunches served in a cafeteria near you!

To help educate students around the importance of healthy foods, learning cooking skills, or learning how food grows through hands on gardening projects,  the FArm to School grant has funds available for teachers!  If you have ideas or need help with food or garden-based educational opportunities, please contact Julie Mack to utilize grant funds!
