Wellness Week at Nassakeag

Wellness Week at Nassakeag  thumbnail114670

With the support and organization of the school’s Site-Based Management Team, Nassakeag Elementary School students and staff took part in activities and programs in honor of Wellness Week this March.

To kick off the event, the school welcomed guest speakers on a day they called Mindful Monday. During an assembly program, Dana Cavalea, former strength and conditioning coach of the New York Yankees, spoke with the students about his book, “Habits of a Champion.” 

For the remainder of the week, each day followed a central theme as well. On Tasty Tuesday, the school’s PTA provided each student with a healthy snack; on Walking Wacky Wednesday, teachers and students wore wacky clothing and went on walks; and for Namaste Thursday, all grades had a yoga session with Missy Cotton, a certified instructor and former student. The week ended with a Fun Friday Drop Everything and Read initiative and evening program for all families.
