Setauket Elementary School unveiled its schoolwide Wellness Walk on March 7. The Wellness Walk provides students with several resources to promote their social-emotional health and well-being.

Throughout the building, there are 14 stations that are part of the Wellness Walk. Each station offers a coping skill related to improving one’s mood, changing or distracting unhelpful thoughts and increasing relaxation skills. There are deep breathing stations, coloring stations, a sensory wall, an interactive tic-tac-toe board and movement stations to name a few. The stations benefit elementary age levels and offer students several ways to effectively deal with everyday stressors.

On the opening day of the Wellness Walk, classes had the opportunity to experience the stations during scheduled times. Throughout the year, the building’s social-emotional learning team will replace existing stations with new ideas. Setauket Elementary School hopes its initiative will expand to other schools in the district and promote mental health throughout the Three Village community.
