School board to hear about summer student wellness program tonight

The District 833 School Board will hear about Newport Elementary School's dental program, and take action on a change to its athletic and activity participation policy at tonight's meeting.

The policy change would require that seventh- and eighth-graders who participate in high school gymnastics, skiing or cross country running participate at the high school they will attend under the district's new boundaries, said Phil Kuemmel, activities director at Park High School.

There will also be a presentation on the KIWI Program, a summer program that supports student wellness.
