Health and Wellness Services
The Fort Wayne Community School’s Health Services staff supports student achievement by implementing strategies that promote health and wellness.
FWCS school nurses work in partnership with Parkview Community Health Improvement Initiative nurses to provide access to appropriate health care for students and their families. School nurses provide the connecting link between families, health care providers, school staff, and community resources.
School nurses provide medical interventions for students who have acute and/or chronic health concerns to improve student health and support school achievement and success. School nurses assist students to develop the skills necessary for successful.
School nurses provide health promotion, disease prevention education and activities for students, staff and families. While supporting goals to maintain optimal health and encouraging attitudes conducive to positive health practices, school nurses effectively impact the community as a whole.
Whether you are biking during the Spring Cycle, walking or running during the Fall Festival or Fantasy of Lights 5K you can sign up under FWCS. Once we reach 100 participants who choose FWCS as their charity partner, Fort4Fitness will donate part of your registration fees back to FWCS. They will also give us a reunion area in the picnic pavilion area in right field during the Fall Festival.
Parkview has improved the health and well being of children most in need in our community by providing school-based registered nurses and specialists who provide direct care and consultation. This school year Parkview Hospital will provide three community nurses and other health supports to serve our FWCS families at our new Family and Community Engagement Center.
The St. Joseph Community Health Foundation is a valuable partner and supporter of FWCS. Their mission is investing and collaborating to improve the mind, body and spirit of the poor and underserved.
