Wellness is a vital part of the educational environment. Students can’t be expected to learn if they aren’t healthy and there are many studies out there that support a positive correlation between student wellness and learning. The Marshalltown Community School District hopes the establishment of a new district-wide Wellness Committee will help to encourage a culture of health and wellness within Marshalltown Schools and across the Marshalltown community.
