About Charles:

My wellness goal: My goal is to drop down to 200lbs or less. To lose my huge stomach, as my friends ask me when i’m due. 

Biggest takeaway from the #BeWellMonti Challenge:  I try to spend more time with my kids and at home now. I try not to be on a work 24-7 status, which is hard to do, due to my pride in my work at Monticello.  

My “why”:   ​My “why” is my girls so i can be around longer for them. Recent with my medical problems i need loose the weight so doing the #beWellMonti encourages me to do more each day.  😢 they make me proud every day they grow. 

#BeWellMonti Challenge continues all summer long

Even though the 2018-19 school year has come to a close, the #BeWellMonti Challenge will continue all summer long! Each Panther (student or staff) who posts 10 or more posts on Twitter in a single month with the hashtag #BeWellMonti AND #BWMStaff OR #BWMStudent will have a chance at being named one of that month’s Wellness Winners (one student, one staff). 

On the first day of school in the 2019-20 school year, Superintendent Mangus will put all the Wellness Winners’s names into a hat, and pull one lucky cat to win a $500 cash prize. For more information about the challenge, please visit the #BeWellMonti webpage. 

Students can play, too! 

Although we were unable to pick a June student winner, due to lack of eligible entries, students (including incoming kindergartners and members of the class of 2019) are eligible to play, too! Parents are welcome to post on behalf of their children. 

We truly hope to see more of our families join in on this movement to make the 2019-20 school year our healthiest yet!
