12th Annual BPS Wellness Summit
May 15 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The BPS Wellness Summit brings together district and community stakeholders to learn from a keynote speaker, as well as celebrate successes at schools and learn from each other through school-led breakout sessions. A highlight of the Summit is a special awards ceremony to honor schools’ excellence in school wellness. A healthy breakfast and lunch, as well as opportunities for physical activity, are included in the day.
This year our theme is focused on the importance of health equity in public education. Addressing health equity is an important component to increasing the access and agency of students to take control of their own wellbeing. This year Ms. Nineequa Blanding, Director of Health & Wellness at the Boston Foundation will deliver the keynote address. Ms. Blanding will be speaking on the importance of promoting health equity and addressing health disparities as a part of closing opportunity gaps for our students that have been most marginalized.
