ARS Wellness


A message from the ARS Wellness Committee:

Our school Wellness Committee is an advisory group that focuses on the health and well-being of American Renaissance School staff, students, and families. ARS Wellness committee implements the school wellness policy to provide knowledge and education on the importance of physical, mental, and social wellness. The composed committee includes members of the medical profession, ARS board members, parents, and staff.

Our long-term goals are to facilitate future staff health training and provide wellness knowledge to our school community. The committee will provide wellness information throughout the school year.  ARS Wellness understands the importance of developing and maintaining a healthy body, and it is essential to ARS faculty/staff, students, and families.
