WPHS has a Wellness (WELCO) committee designed to not only support the mission of the district committee, but also work with other organizations within the school and the community that promote the ideals of our committee. The high school WELCO committee convenes once month to discuss a monthly action plan that incorporates our school goal of promoting activity among the students and staff. In January 2019 we started a Student WELCO team that allowed students to determine our path. We had a focus group to see what was important to the students. From there we began hosting a meditation group each week as well as a healthy lifestyle challenge and incorporated a book study for students
