Wellness Policy

The Wellness Committee (wellness@hamiltonschools.us) is a group of volunteer teachers, parents, and community members that sacrifice their time to help enhance Hamilton’s wellness.

It's led by three experts in the field of health and well-being. Each of us brings different backgrounds, interests, and perspectives to the wellness team. Together, the Wellness Committee aims to deliver opportunities and content that matters to you as it relates to being well - physical, emotional, mental, social, and intellectual.
