Working on Wellness

Minnesauke Elementary School students are developing healthy habits as they work on personal wellness goals through their participation in an after-school wellness club facilitated by school social worker Leia Woodruff. 

Open to the building’s fourth through sixth graders, the club has been meeting after school since October to forge lifelong healthy attributes. They have worked together to create stress balls, talk about ways to alleviate stress, sketched self-esteem portraits and created worry boxes. 

The program is being funded through a grant secured by K-6 Chairperson for Health and Physical Education Christina Driscoll and the Office of School and Community Partnerships.
