Employee Wellness Grant!
            Centennial has been awarded a $24,415 Employee Wellness Grant through OEA Choice Trust!  Centennial recognizes how hard every employee works and will be using the Employee Wellness Grant to offer resources around stress management, nutrition and weight management, and physical activity opportunities with the goal of reducing chronic illness and creating a healthy, happy work environment. 

The first year of this grant will focus on three objectives:           
1.     Establishing an Employee Wellness Committee with representatives from all building and both unions
2.     Establish an effective communication plan across Centennial District
3.     Offer employee wellness events or classes that address stress management, weight or nutrition education, physical activity, and supporting staff appreciation weeks. 

Keep an eye out for more information coming your way soon! If you have questions or are interested in volunteered contact Julie Mack.
