Fairmont Youth Make Voices Heard!

Fairmont Area Schools held its first Youth Wellness Committee meeting on Friday, December 6th. The Committee consisted of 10 students between the ages of 8 and 12. The Youth Wellness Committee is designed to give students a voice on healthy changes for their school. We wanted to hear from a students’ perspective how they feel about school nutrition and active school day activities. These 10 students are very passionate about health and are looking forward to helping their school make changes to their wellness policies. Students will meet once a month, focusing on different topics at each meeting. In January, students will spend time focusing on school nutrition.  CJFMW SHIP is excited to see the outcome of having students lead the healthy efforts in their school!
