Our Vision: To be the healthiest community in the nation, together with our students, staff, parents and community
 
 
In a break from more traditional thinking, the district is intentionally embracing and fostering a comprehensive approach to wellness which includes the physical, psychological and environmental well-being of our students, staff, families and community.  Doing so speaks to a long-standing value held in the district – educating the whole child by addressing health related barriers to learning and by providing a safe and supportive learning environment in which children can thrive.  
 

Toward this vision, the district’s Comprehensive Wellness Strategy has identified the following five go​als: Awareness, Alignmen​t, Acquisition of Skills, Action and Accountability.

As a primary means of achieving our goals and coordinating our work, the district has formed a Wellness Leadership Committee.  Our belief is that leadership, at all levels, plays an essential role in creating a culture of wellness that is committed to developing and sustaining an environment and climate conducive to change.   The committee is comprised of representatives from Food and Nutrition Services, Health Services, Mental Health, Safety and Security, Athletics and Activities, Physical Education, Health Education, Facilities Support, Data and Research, Communication Services, Excellence and Equity and Human Resources.

A belief in the importance of collaboration and shared responsibility are also key elements central to achieving our goals.  We understand and embrace the notion that schools cannot and should not operate in isolation with it comes to wellness.  We believe that through the development of purposeful partnerships, listening to stakeholders and engaging parents, Cherry Creek Schools can serve as a leader in mobilizing community commitment.  Therefore, we offer opportunities to become further involved in our efforts by joining select committees, attending classes and participating in signature events.
