Wellness Program Review
Dear Parent or Guardian:
I realize that you have seen several surveys this school- year. The NPS wellness department is asking you to consider one more. Each year the district conducts a comprehensive review of a particular
program. For 2012-2013, we are examining our wellness (health, physical education and middle school experiential education) program. As a parent/guardian of a child who is participating in the
wellness program, your opinion is an important component of this review. We ask that you take a few minutes of your time to fill out the attached survey. Data from this survey, along with data from
other sources will be used to make important decisions about future programming directions. As many parents will have a spouse or partner who will also receive this email, please submit one survey per family. In addition, many families have more than one child currently in the Needham Public Schools. For this reason, please choose the survey link that corresponds to the grade level of your oldest child.
Your individual responses are confidential. Only the aggregated results will be shared with the research team. There are no right or wrong answers. Please answer the
questions based on what you really feel, believe, or know. Make sure to carefully read and respond to every question. When you are finished, please make sure to click on the FINISH button. This final step will add your responses to the database.
Thank you for your help!

Students in grades 3-5 are completing the Needham Public Schools 2013 surveys in their classrooms. Teachers are assisting students with the survey administration, explaining the purpose, the confidentiality of their answers and addressing their questions. We need you to complete your survey at the same time as your child. The survey will allow our school to celebrate strengths, monitor changes, and respond to areas of challenge in our efforts to maximize student learning. Our School Council will analyze the survey findings as they develop our annual school improvement plan. You have the option of
completing the Parent Survey online at this link:
If you complete the survey online, please disregard the paper version delivered to your home. Thank you!
