The TNS Wellness Committee aka School Wellness council is comprised of parents and staff members dedicated to building and encouraging good health through fitness, nutrition and self awareness to the students and school community by promoting wellness events and switching to the alternative lunch menu. 

Some initiatives have been to get a climbing wall for our gym, fitness stencils for our recess yard, upgrading our PTA room, discussing the #metoo/#timesup movement and how to talk to your kids about it, painting our cafeterias, hosting tastings, purchasing indoor recess games etc. 

TNS participates in the alternative lunch program. Check out the menu and encourage your kid(s) to try new foods, have tastings at home, talk about the nutritional benefits of eating different foods.
