The “Year of Wellness” is becoming the “YEARS” of wellness, and so it’s time for kindergarten through third graders to get out their crayons and colored pencils to provide artwork for the 2017 Year of Wellness calendar.

The Year of Wellness (YOW) task force is proud to continue to recognize youth contributions and participation by requesting artwork from kindergarten through third grade students for our 2017 Health and Wellness Calendar.  Last year over 18,000 calendars were distributed throughout the County.  Two of the greatest protective factors for our youth are school attachment and positive public recognition.  This is an effort to build resiliency in our youth regardless of other factors they face outside of the classroom.  By providing a drawing for the YOW calendar, they will have both.  Our calendar theme this year is Mind, Body, Balance—Being Well.  We are asking all k-3rd grade students to submit a drawing that portray this health and wellness theme of “feeling good.”
