For over twenty years, UMCHS staff, volunteers and parents have gathered once a year to celebrate healthy lifestyle choices at Wellness Day. Umatilla Morrow Head Start’s mission is all about building stronger families, better communities and brighter futures. Much of the important work at UMCHS rests on the belief that it is possible to make a difference in helping children, families and communities live happier lives by pursuing those things that make us most healthy. At UMCHS, we believe that it is vital to emphasize health focused goals and values for staff in the same way that we are asking the families we serve to embrace them. Wellness Day traditionally takes place in a park where staff, volunteers and parents are able to enjoy a variety of activities that emphasize good health and nutrition practices while engaging with each other and building upon their relationships. It is a day that many look forward to all year long!
