Student Wellness is a priority at APS. Focusing on physical, mental and emotional health issues, the students of the Wellness Committee plan events that take place throughout the school year.
Planned Events include:
- Red Ribbon Week: Drug Use and Abuse Awareness, National Week is the last week of October annually. The committee creates a theme for each day of the week, and choose fun activities for the elementary and high school students.
- Every 32 Minutes: An impactful activity, students are brought face-to-face with the reality of the choices they make. Based on the statistic that every 32 minutes a person in the United States dies from a drug or alcohol related event, this program selectively "kills" students during the school day. Students, parents, teachers, and local law enforcement officials work together on the events of the day.
- Incentive Parties: The Wellness Committee has assisted in planning incentive parties for the students in Middle School and High School who have met certain criteria each quarter.
