* AN AWARENESS that wellness is the intersection of social, economic, and environmental justice, individual health, and community strength.
* AN UNDERSTANDING that students, families, teachers, and neighbors play an active role as community builders working towards a healthier, more just world.
* A COMMITMENT to developing sustainable wellness both within our walls and in the community beyond.
