THE BRONX - One school in Claremont Village is putting a real emphasis on student wellness. 

P.S. 55 on Saint Paul's Avenue is trying to raise enough money to build a health and wellness center on its campus. 

Blueprints and renderings are already in place for what would be a commercial farm and kitchen. Teachers say the facility would not only make kids healthier, but would provide endless learning opportunities. 

The school is the same one recently visited by White House Chef Bill Yosses who cooked tacos with the kids and talked about healthy eating.
