CSD Wellness Program Wins National Award and Grant!

The Directors of Health Promotion and Education (DHPE) has awarded Colchester School District’s wellness program with its School Employee Wellness Award again this year!

CSD’s wellness program won the DHPE’s bronze award last year, and this year, the DHPE chose it for a silver-level award. The requirements are stringent, and CSD is the only district in the state to receive this distinction!

As a silver winner, CSD’s wellness program will receive a $500 grant to support further enhancements as well as recognition on the DHPE’s website. Representatives of the program will also be invited to present at national conferences, and there are a variety of other perks, as well.

We take health and wellness initiatives very seriously; in fact, an entire pathway of the newly completed Colchester School District Vision and Strategic Plan is devoted to wellness-oriented, balanced, and healthy learners.

For questions or comments about the district’s wellness program or about the DHPE’s award, please e-mail Wellness Coordinator Connie Gavin.
