Integrating Health and Wellness for Student Success: The Story of Archuleta School District

When Colorado students are living in poverty, come to school hungry, or feel unsafe, this affects their ability to learn. In Archuleta School District’s Pagosa Springs Middle School they believe in the strong connection between student learning and health and wellness. Educators have woven health and wellness into the fabric of the school with great results.  Pagosa Springs Middle School was the 2015 Healthy School Champions Platinum Governor’s Award for School Health and Wellness winner.
