"I wanted to give a very big thank-you to you and everyone who makes the wellness opportunities available to the district staff. I want to share personally how much it has helped me and how grateful I am to have access to the resources. I think that the program we have is so valuable and I am so thankful for the physical items I have received, as well."

Would you like to nominate someone for next month's Health Nut of the Month?Administrator Health Nut Winner:Amy Zulauf!Congratulations to Amy Zulauf, Assistant Principal at West High School for being nominated and selected as our Administrator/Supervisor Health Nut of the Quarter!!
Here is what her nominator had to say:
"As a busy administrator and mom of three, Amy defies the laws of time to make staying healthy a priority in her world. Not only does she wake up early to get a workout in at the gym every morning, she goes on walks with her kids and her crazy dogs almost nightly. Additionally, she makes drinking water throughout the day, and eating a huge, healthy, school lunch a part of her daily routine. Amy also shows her support for the healthy activities that various teachers are sponsoring at West, including Zumba every Monday afternoon. While Amy will be the first to say she’s no Zumba expert, she still attends, with her children, week after week. Since the Attain app was incentivized, we’ve begun sharing our activity on our apple watches, and it’s been my personal mission to work out as many days as she does. She truly motivates me to be the healthiest version of myself."
