Welcome to our Wellness Page! My name is Alex Severs and I am the District Wellness Coordinator for the Monett R-1 School District. I work to increase access to healthy food and physical activity where our students live, learn, and play. I know that aside from home, school is the place where kids spend most of their time and making schools healthy is vital to preparing students for success. I have a passion for improving the lives of students, staff and the community through our wellness efforts. Monett R-1 had the privilege of receiving a 5-year grant from Missouri Foundation for Health called Healthy Schools Healthy Communities where we made great strides to improve the health of both our students and staff. The HSHC initiative ended in July 2018 and through its success we hope to continue our growth as one of the nation’s healthiest schools. Under the Missouri Foundation for Health, and Administrative guidance Monett has been named one of the country’s healthiest schools according to the Alliance for a Healthier Generation in 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020. I hold a Bachelors of Science in Nutritional Sciences degree from the University of Missouri, with a major emphasis in Nutrition and Fitness.
