Wellness Council

Dear PS/IS 180 Families,

All members of the PS/IS 180 community are invited to join the newly formed PS/IS 180 Wellness Council! The Wellness Council involves families, faculty, and school leadership alongside community leaders to ensure our children are receiving the programming and resources they need to be healthy and active throughout the school year.

What does a Wellness Council do?

  • Make sure the school provides high-quality physical education and health education
  • Make sure the school is following the DOE Wellness Policy
  • Starting physical activity clubs and organizing fitness events
  • Creating healthy snack policies and encouraging your school to follow them
  • School gardening
  • Promote the importance of healthy food
  • Promote inclusivity and diversity

If those are activities you want to be a part of, or have any specific health and wellness experience, we’d love to hear from you!
