Healthy Tips & Trends for SW Dubois Schools & Community
HEROES = Healthy, Energetic, Ready, Outstanding, Enthusiastic Schools
Southridge Middle School and Holland Elementary are excited to part of the HEROES Initiative, funded and supported by the Welborn Baptist Foundation, Inc. While these schools will be participating in health education activities, wellness challenges, and programs over the next three years (and beyond), wellness is for EVERYONE. Therefore any efforts toward change or improvement are community-wide efforts, and the entire Southwest Dubois County Schools Community is invited and included.
