I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate our staff and students for receiving the-Oregon School Wellness Award!
Also Congratulations to the St Paul Wellness Committee for their work in putting this application together. Special thank to Toni Veeman and the other members of the committee: Teachers: Kristi Stoltenberg, Carmen Boyd, Board Member-Rob Scott, Community members: Cary Bean, and Kim Faber. St Paul Elementary demonstrated exemplary implementation of school wellness policies and St. Paul Elementary went beyond the requirements and demonstrated that our school is making a difference for Oregon students and helping to prepare students to make life-long healthy food and physical activity choices.
St. Paul Elementary serves as an example for the entire state and should be very proud of your efforts. I hope you continue to demonstrate innovation and creativity in implementing components of school wellness in the future.
St. Paul Elementary will receive a $2,500 cash prize, certificate of recognition, and banner at a locally organized event that should include all students, faculty and representatives from the Oregon Department of Education and the Oregon Dairy and Nutrition Council.
