Fresh Fr

The LESD Wellness Program promotes healthy choices for our students and families. We partner with parents, teachers, staff, administrators and students to help support healthy attitudes and environments throughout the district. We are active in school gardens, participate in afterschool and evening events, and offer nutrition education classes for parents and students.
