Healing Our Kids:  Ways to Wellness / 12 – 3:30 p.m.

Presented by the Rural Schools Association of New York State

Life is challenging our students like never before. Stress we never experienced is now a regular part of childhood. We need proven, effective ways of helping to address student life challenges. The Rural Schools Association Spring Summit will focus on burgeoning approaches to healing our kids. First, you’ll hear how new and renovated school space (through declining enrollment) is being used for never before imagined supports. Their leaders of the new Farm to School initiative will share ideas that support both our local economy and student nutritional health. Finally, folks will show how to revive school wellness policies into a vibrant and comprehensive approach to student health. All this will be provided in a concise and insightful manner designed to get you lunch and information within a three-hour timeframe. Register for this event directly with RSANY.
