Englewood Schools believes that we can only maintain our “Belong and Thrive,” if we are in our best health possible. Research has illustrated time and again that good cardiovascular health strongly correlates to improved performance in math, reading, and other subjects, and that having sound nutrition enables students to concentrate better and learn more.
But good health is not just for kids – it is for all of us.

The Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004 mandated that school districts participating in any federally reimbursed school meal programs develop a local school wellness policy by the beginning of the 2006–07 school year, and that this policy must be reviewed regularly by a district wellness committee. To this end, TEC has created a District-wide Wellness Committee. Please check back frequently to see what the committee is working on, and how you can become part of Englewood TEC campus Schools' wellness initiatives.
