Parents, students and community members are all welcome to be a part of Northfield’s Wellness Team, a partnership with the Be Well Health and Wellness Initiative at the Stapleton Foundation. The program was established to organize, implement and assess healthy living projects at local schools — because healthy schools create healthy communities!
The Wellness Team meets from 6-7 p.m. on the fourth Monday of every month. Anyone interested in health — physical, mental, nutritional, etc.. — is welcome. The team’s current projects include an effort to hold free, monthly fitness classes open to the community, build a wellness center for students and faculty, and increase the use of a healthy vending machine at school.
