The school wellness council supports quality, school-based physical education and health education instruction. They provide programs that can improve students’ well-being and academic achievement, making sure all students are physically literate.
“The topic is about eating healthy, staying safe, active, and clean. It is important to me because some people don’t eat healthy or stay clean and also do not make healthy choices. P.S. 115 is a great school to attend because we help clean, respect, and do not litter of bully. We also have sports to give us lots of energy. And to keep us health, active, and strong. We planned on helping not only students, but our teachers, parents, and school community.”

The Green Team
The Green Team is made up of second and third grade students who are interested in creating projects around environmental issues.
“In the Green Team, we go to trips to research and we collect materials that are no longer in use and use them to make art to show people. It is important because we get to help the school learn how to recycle. What I like about it, is that we get to learn more about recycling. This shows that P.S. 115 is a great school to attend because we recycle and we help the environment.”

“On the Green Team, I recycle paper, glass, plastic, and metal for my school. This is important because I can help keep our school safe and clean for everybody and the fish. This shows that my school cares about keeping the building safe and clean. Not every school has a Green Team.”

“The topic is about the Girls Basketball Team. Basketball is important because you will learn more if you go to practice and you will be one of the best basketball players. What I like about basketball is that we get to practice on Tuesday and Wednesday. P.S. 115 is a great school because if you have trouble with anything, you will have an afterschool program and they will help you. Also, if you want to be in the basketball team you will need good grades and to do your homework.”

“In basketball, we learn basic moves. We have fun and use those moves in activities. We also learn sportsmanship and how to apply it in games. Another thing is we make friends from each school we go to. Basketball is important because it helps increase our health. Our basketball coaches help us practice our math and literature skills. P.S. 115 is a great school to attend because not only does it teach you math and more but it helps your health. It gives you an interest in a lifetime of physical fitness.”
