physical education program, healthy living

The Somerville Public Schools strives to promote social, emotional, mental, physical, intellectual and environmental well-being through a collaborative approach across departments.

The District Wellness Coordinator, Caitlin Kelly, supports well-being throughout the district by coordinating policy, practice, programming and promotion in collaboration with school and city departments, the District Wellness Committee, Wellness Champions at each school as well as community partners.

Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model
