Eastchester School District Wellness Initiative

 This year EEC is aligned with the Eastchester Schools' Wellness Initiative. Wellness is an environmental issue too because health, psychological well being, emotional lives and spirit are powerfully impacted by the environment. EEC goals are to engage students and to help where we can to educate students on sustainability and empower them to create recycling and composting practices in the schools, to learn more about gardening and locally sourced nutrition and other issues of environmental concern
