Wellness Team Englewood Schools 

Schools across the United States are urging more of their attention toward health and wellness - this is great! Unfortunately, many wellness initiatives fail or are unpopular because they focus on the negative side of health: taking things away. Englewood Schools chooses a different approach: improving wellness by ADDITION, not subtraction!

Matt Hoganson and Katie Kossette is running the school district's wellness team for the 2022-2023 school year.

Name: Katie Cossette, RDN, SNS
Title: Director of Nutrition Services
