Eat Right for Life: Nutrition Course
Eat Right for Life is a nutrition class that focuses on the book written by Dr. Ann Kulze. During this 6 week class, Jessica Lehman, our Wellness Coordinator will be discussing key points from each chapter. Participants will be encouraged to read a chapter each week that will coincide with the topics. Both Dr. Ann’s book and Jessica want to help with any diet confusion that occurs in an effort to lead a healthy lifestyle. Typically, this course would cost $50, but NJSD staff have free access as part of the Healthy You employee wellness program.
Vitality Nutrition Course Challenge
All Vitality members can earn 300 points for completing a Nutrition Course on the website. This month, anyone who completes a course will have an extra opportunity to win a wellness prize from Healthy You! Watch the video below for more information.
A healthy diet can contribute to a healthy and productive life. Vitality offers six educational nutrition courses to help you begin and maintain a healthy diet and practice healthy eating every day. Choosing the best and healthiest foods requires knowledge and support. With courses designed to teach you the basics of healthy eating, we can help.
Just for YOU!
The Neenah Joint School District values your wellbeing and provides many services and programs for its staff. Check out the ways in which we bring health and wellness to YOU!
NJSD Fitness Rooms
Free-access fitness facilities
Neenah High School, Horace Mann Middle School, and Shattuck Middle School have fitness facilities that are free and available to staff members at any time. Email Brooke Chaltry for fob access to the buildings and the NHS fitness room. Contact building custodians at the middle schools for key access to the fitness rooms.
Fitting exercise into your day
You don't need hours in a day to devote to physical activity. We are all busy and may only have a quick 10 or 15-minute break to be active. Aside from walking the halls, you also could do a quick video. Follow the link for short and longer videos to use depending on the time you have. It's not about FINDING time, it's about MAKING time and making movement a priority. NJSD staff now have access to the YMCA online fitness library as well. Check it all out by clicking the link below.
Take time for self-care
"Mindfulness is being aware of yourself, others, and your surroundings in the moment. When consciously and kindly focusing awareness on life as it unfolds minute by precious minute, you are better able to savor each experience. Also, being closely attentive gives you the opportunity to change unwise or painful feelings and responses quickly. In fact, being truly present in a mindful way is an excellent stress reducer and, because of that, can be seen as consciousness conditioning, a strengthening workout for body, mind, heart, and spirit"-Sue Thoele
Try these easy, healthy recipes!

Bringing Fitness to You
Together with instructors and organizations within the community, we provide classes and programs designed for every fitness level for every body. We understand how full your day can be, and we acknowledge the struggle to find time for personal fitness. With that in mind, we have structured our programs around YOU and your day to provide ample opportunity for wellness.
Professional Learning and Development:
PLD Wellness Hour
Health Begins Here
Professional Learning and Development days have a built-in wellness component as a reflection of the support provided by the administration. Creating a culture of health is a core value in the Neenah School district because we believe that the healthier and happier our staff are, the more potential there is to provide quality education and care for our students.
The Neenah Joint School District offers a variety of wellness opportunities and services for staff and families including a comprehensive insurance plan with an accompanying wellness platform, an on-site wellness clinic, employee assistance program and other services.

Vitality is an active, fully integrated global wellness program designed to engage, encourage and reward you on your personal pathway to better health.
You begin your Vitality journey at Bronze Vitality Status by taking the Vitality Health Review: an online questionnaire about your current health and lifestyle.
