2012-2013 BPS Health & Wellness Calendar

The Health & Wellness Department, in collaboration with the Office of Instructional and Information Technology has developed a 2012-2013 BPS Health & Wellness Calendar for BPS schools and others in the BPS community. The calendar is filled with digital artwork created by Boston Public School students who participated in the Adobe Youth Voices project sponsored by the Adobe Foundation. The calendar was created to showcase the work of these talented students who used digital tools to create positive messages around health and wellness.

The Boston Public Schools actively promotes the health and wellness of all students to support both their healthy development and readiness to learn.  In support of this goal, the district developed the Healthy Connections Strategic Plan, which includes four preliminary outcome goals –

  1.     Improve student fitness
  2.     Promote healthy student behaviors & engagement
  3.     Improve school-based health care
  4.     Create a healthy school environment

The calendar was created by and for BPS students to promote these four health & wellness goals. The calendar was designed by a BPS student and also includes important health & wellness related days and months such as Good Nutrition Month and Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month, and websites for you to visit for information and resources around these topics.
