Patriot Wellness

At the start of this year, the school district put into action a health & wellness committee and kicked off the program with an all-staff professional development day on February 18th. The goals of the event supported employees by offering professional development opportunities that focused on overall well-being: mind, body and spirit, and offered resources available in our community to foster healthy lifestyles.

The focus on health and wellness is for all employees. Albeit more of a behind-the-scenes platform, the committee feels strongly that the best opportunities for the students, families and community members we serve is to first take care of our employees through outreach in a safe and collaborative work environment.

We believe our District is on the verge of something good that has the potential to be great with the support of community partners Crow Wing Energized, Sourcewell, and Resource Training & Solutions. On behalf of the Pequot Lakes School District Health & Wellness Committee, thank you for the encouragement. We look forward to ongoing efforts and contributions from the Patriot Health & Wellness Committee and expect the program to evolve year after year.
