• About Staff Wellness

    Monett Wellness

    Since 2013, Barry and Lawrence counties have made great strides in building a healthier future for children and families as part of its’ Healthy Schools Healthy Communities (HSHC) grant from Missouri Foundation for Health. The initiative brought together schools, community organizations, businesses, parents, and residents to increase access to healthy food and physical activity where kids live, learn, and play. Staff is no exception. The Monett  R-1 School District highly values the health and well-being of every staff member and will plan and implement activities and policies that support personal efforts by staff to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Monett R-1 strives to make a commitment to provide school environments that promote and protect both student and staff health, well-being, and ability to learn. During our HSHC intiative Monett R-1 created and implemented an employee wellness program that encourages you, as staff to act as healthy role models for our students. 

    Monett R-1 is proud of the healthy changes made possible by the Healthy Schools Healthy Communities grant, and are excited staff will be able to benefit from these improvements for years to come. 


  •  Who is ready for some friendly competition?!
     
    Please read the following carefully...
     
    It is time for our annual Maintain Don't Gain challenge! This year will have an additional spin, competition and prizes outside of the 25 points! Maintain Don't Gain will run from 11/12 - 1/7. Measurements can be taken by your campus nurse starting Monday. Measurements will be accepted through 11/16. If you are SRTC, please see Heather Schmidly. If you are Central Office, Special Services, maintenance, or anyone else I missed. See the nurse of your choice/closest to you. 
     
    When you see your campus nurse you will be having both your weight measured and your waist circumference. As we know, sometimes we show success their before we see success on the scale. See attached flyer from Cox.
