The New Health & Wellness Coordinator

Sunday, October 09, 2011

Of course we are all aware of the shortage of funds in the public school system, but I think we might need to take up a collection. My boss comes to me and says, "Along with your duties, you will be the Health and Wellness Coordinator for our school." I gave her a smile, but in my head it was like, "Whatchu Talkin' 'bout Willis?!"

Yes, this is just what I need to keep me going, so I am ok with this. But this means I have to coordinate activities for both the staff and students. So I need some activites suggestions for students 10-12th grade and staff from ages 27-65. Dont worry the 65 year old is the spry one, its the under 50 crowd that Im gonna have the most trouble with. LOL

Also, does anyone know how I can get some help getting my students on sparkteen? In order for them to be on, I have to be a monitor. Tried contacting someone through partnerships, but havent gotten a response.

Keep Sparkin'

    I think you are going to do very well as the coordinator. I'm sure SP wouldn't mine a whole boatload of teens signing up on SparkTeen. I'm sure not all of them will stick with it but hopefully many will - perhaps it will become a lifestyle for them.

I could see you organizing something like Family Feud with the teens. You could assign several articles to read, create some questions and let the feud begin! Woo - Hoo to you!

    Good luck with the new added responsibilities. And yeah I think if you contact Chris the spark guy directly, maybe him, or someone from his team will get back to you. I know it's a small company and they try to get back to members. So might be worth a shot. I hope you can blog about how your students are progressing with their weight loss endeavors. I'd be interested in hearing about it. Good luck!

    I noticed that the Sparks dude is on the friends feed and appears to be engaging folks from time to time. I know he's probably not responding personally but it wouldn't hurt to post something directly on his page. I bet that someone will respond.

Sounds like a fun project. Good Luck

    Maybe going through Sparks here could help you with that. Just have to try if you can. Maybe the coaches can help you in setting it up. I have not done that so this is just a suggestion.
