Wellness education for students at Chileda Institute in La Crosse is the focus of a grant from the Tools for Schools program.
Trista Zimmerman and Anita Dickman received the $750 award from WXOW, Brenengen Auto, SSE Music, and Dependable Solutions.
Both say Chileda doesn't currently have a health or wellness course. Zimmerman said the grant money will go for buying supplies and materials to help implement a healthy habits program.
"We are going to be doing a healthy habits program, hopefully over the summer so the next few months. We're going to be focusing on health, wellness and just overall wellbeing for the students," said Zimmerman.
Every month, a Tools for Schools grant is awarded to help a teacher or class. To apply, click here.
