Mission

The mission of BASHY is to provide a community wide effort to support both school and community programs and projects which promote comprehensive school health and human services including: health education, tobacco, alcohol and other drug prevention, a safe and healthy environment, nutrition and wellness.

Meetings

At the meetings we discuss what is happening in Braintree Public Schools and the community in regards to these topics. We review program goals, objectives and activities, monitor program effectiveness and provide input for program development and improvement. Each year we plan a parent/guardian educational evening called, "Making a Difference."
