Rosary School Wellness Policy 2019-2020

Rosary  Catholic School is committed to the optimal development of every student. The school believes that for students to have the opportunity to achieve personal, academic, developmental and social success, we need to create positive, safe, and health-promoting learning environments at every level, in every setting, throughout the school year.

Rosary School follows the Guidelines outlined in the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City’s Wellness Policy for Catholic Schools. (attached) The Rosary School Healthy and Fit committee will create specific goals outlined in the Archdiocesan policy.

This policy outlines Rosary School’s approach to ensuring environments and opportunities for all students to practice healthy eating and physical activity behaviors throughout the school day, and also after school and on the weekend.

This policy establishes goal and procedures to ensure that:

  • Rosary School will engage in nutrition and physical activity promotion and other activities that promote wellness
  • School staff are encouraged and supported to practice healthy nutrition and physical activity behaviors in and out of school
  • The community is engaged in supporting the work of the school in creating continuity between school and other setting for students and staff to practice lifelong healthy habits
