Excellence in School Wellness Award

Congratulations to PS 9 for achieving the “Silver” Excellence in School Wellness Award!

The NYC Department of Health & Mental Hygiene’s Excellence in School Wellness Award was created to recognize elementary schools for their efforts in creating a healthy school environment as a means to promote child health and improve academic achievement. The focus of the award is to highlight school policies and practices that will encourage healthier behaviors within our communities.

Last year, PS 9 achieved the “Bronze” Award and this year, we have improved our school wellness practices to achieve the “Silver” Award. (Side note: last year, no other school on Staten Island achieved the silver level).

A HUGE thank you to the administration and staff at PS 9 for implementing school programs that promote health and wellness- especially in the areas of Physical Education, Physical Activity, Nutrition, Wellness and Mental Health.
