Active since 2007, the committee addresses a range of youth-serving initiatives in areas of nutrition, fitness/recreation, mental health, chemical health, teen dating violence, and climate change awareness.

The Wellness Committee includes representatives from Public Schools of Brookline administration, school health staff, physical education/health and fitness, special education, food services, human services, teachers and parents, as well as the Town of Brookline Department of Public Health, including B-CASA (Brookline Coalition Against Substance Abuse) and B-PEN (Brookline Parent Education), the Recreation Department, police, and members from the community. The committee currently is chaired by Peter Rowe, Deputy Superintendent for Administration and Finance, and it is co-chaired by Coordinator of School Health Services Tricia Laham and Prevention/Intervention social worker Mary Minott.

Bpen

B-PEN (Brookline Parent Education Network) helps parents navigate the social, emotional and developmental challenges affecting today’s teens and pre-teens – common challenges that can lead to risky behavior. An outreach initiative that collaborates with Brookline school administrators and PTO’s, the organization’s goals are to facilitate parent connections:

  • with other parents,
  • with school and town resources, and
  • with helpful information via written/electronic materials on a wide variety of teen concerns.
