Support in celebrating changes
Wellpowered Schools, as part of the Healthy Monadnock Alliance, benefit from public recognition of their wellness efforts through a variety of publications throughout our community. Sharing these success stories helps to highlight an organization’s commitment and hard work, and creates an example of possibility for other schools in our community.
