    The Flemington-Raritan Regional School District's Wellness Committee developed a district-wide Wellness Policy which was implemented in September 2006 and was revised in June 2013. This committee, made up of staff, administrators, and members from the community, supported our district in taking a leadership role in promoting healthy behaviors through providing students, staff, and the school community with the knowledge and skills they need to be healthy and productive. 
     
    There is a direct link between nutrition intake and regular physical activity leading to better academic achievement and positive self esteem. It is the Committee's goal to promote the consumption of nutritious foods in school, provide opportunities for students to engage in physical activities, and to provide health and wellness education that promotes good nutrition, physical activity, and other wellness activities at school.
