The Wawasee Community School Corporation Wellness Committee met on Thursday, September 25, 2008. Our present wellness policy was reviewed. Discussion centered on the school lunch program, vending machine choices, student party treats, staff and student fitness, employee assistance program, and health insurance. Becoming a smoke-free school corporation was also discussed.
A WHS student and a PE teacher will be added to the committee. Present committee members were George Gilbert, school board president; Tom Edington, superintendent; Ellen Stevens, WHS principal; Alan Frank, WHS assistant principal; Myra Alexander, corporation nurse; Tony Cassel, WMS principal; Cindy Kaiser, Milford School principal; Kris Woodard, North Webster School principal; Jim Garner, Syracuse School principal; Jane Holloway, North Webster cafeteria manager; Kristen Steffen, community member; and Patsy Doty, parent member.
The committee will meet again during the fall to consider any changes to the present policy. A list of possible additions to our policy from the NEOLA Company was distributed as “homework” for the next meeting.
The Wawascene was created by Dr. Mark Stock, former Superintendent of the Wawasee Community School Corporation. Due to its local popularity, Dr. Stock has left the blog site to future Wawasee administrators.
