Physical Wellness Policy
Physical wellness will be promoted in the curriculum by instructing students and providing information about choices they make which affect their physical wellness. Positive physical wellness choices will be promoted in Science and Physical Education classes and reinforced in many other classes and school sponsored activities. The administration, faculty, and staff will encourage and model positive wellness choices. Physical wellness should be fostered and reinforced in the home. Physical wellness will be promoted by all food service programs — during and after school. Physical wellness will be encouraged through physical activity programs. Physical wellness, along with mental and spiritual wellness, will lead to an improved learning environment for the Mount Olive family.
