Our mission for Coordinated School Health at the Etowah City School System is to emphasize the development of the "whole child" in our educational process and community. Health education and student wellness is a must in the proper development of today's youth. With health and stress related issues confronting an ever increasing number of our students we can no longer ignore the need to promote proper nutrition, healthy lifestyles and proper social and emotional development. We as educators and leaders must promote the eight components of Coordinated School Health to help in the overall academic success of our students.
