Wolves Wellness Center at West Clermont Middle School

Too many children experience persistent disparities in health care access, quality, and outcomes School Based health services play a critical role in ensuring that children and youth have access to high-quality, affordable health care. By providing medical, mental health, oral health, and youth development services on school campuses, school-based health centers (SBHCs) positively impact students’ health and learning. They address a wide variety of health needs, from asthma management to flu vaccination to disease prevention. At the same time, SBHC staff and other school health personnel can act as key partners in efforts to address chronic absenteeism and promote a positive school climate.

West Clermont School District is fortunate to have a school-based health center on its Middle School Campus on Clough Pike. The Middle School Campus operated by HealthSource of Ohio, the region's nationally recognized provider of quality primary care. The center provides medical and vision services to all students throughout the district. The center is open Monday- Friday year round. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call the center at 513-732-5082.

Wolfpack Pantry Introduces Birthday Bags

At Cincy Kids 4 Kids we feel all kids are special and deserve to be celebrated! We realize not every family has the means to provide a birthday party for their kids, the birthday celebration bag program is designed to ensure every child is celebrated on their special day.

The Birthday Bags started when a local school came to us to see if we could help them provide some birthday items to their kids on the weekend meal bag program. We feel it is such a great idea we want to be able to provide the opportunity to other schools/kids. See the form below for more information or to nominate a deserving student.
