Student WellnessReduces barriers to learning

We believe student wellness helps reduce barriers to learning and assists students as they grow into productive adults. The Foundation contributes to promoting the mental and physical wellness of NVUSD students by being an integral part of the NVUSD Wellness Center Initiative and a major benefactor of NVUSD Physical Education programs.

Napa Valley Unified School District’s students deserve success. Many students struggle with learning barriers due to their physical health, mental health, social and emotional support and school connectedness.

The Foundation strives to support NVUSD programs that positively impact student physical and mental health, and improve student learning. (LCAP Goals 1 & 4).

Race for Education

The Race for Education has raised more than $100,000 to date to support fitness and PE programs in the district.

Physical Education

The Foundation advocates for and helps fund physical education programs, including the K-3 PE Program, reinstating dedicated physical education teachers in elemnetary schools. Foundation funding provided and continues to provide proper equipment at all 20 elementary school sites for 8,300 children.

Wellness Centers

The Foundation secured $1.2 million for the NVUSD Wellness Center Initiative, bringing student health centers to all 4 middle school campuses. All Napa middle school students now have on-site access to mental health and counseling services during or after school. This provides immediate intervention and treatment services to students in partnership with local providers such as Napa County Mental Health Services, Clinic Ole, Family Service, Aldea and COPE Family Center.
