Week of April 2, 2017
Health and Wellness at St M
Research has shown that the academic success of students is strongly linked to their health. Students who are more physically active, get adequate sleep and consume a balanced diet perform better in school than those who do not. 
On Friday, our Middle Schoolers participated in a Wellness Day exploring the topics of Mental Wellness/Coping Skills for Stress, Mindfulness and Relaxation, Nutritious Snacks and Healthy Sleep Habits. Special thanks to organizer Katherine Martin and to our speakers:
  • Jodi Beland (Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation)
  • Jenny Courain (Mindfulness and yoga coach)
  • Laura Godwin (VAIS/Nutrition specialist)
  • Rachel Verghis (Healthy sleep habits)
 Important Announcements:
A reminder that Wednesday, April 5 is a Lower School NOON release day.
Our Extended Day program opens at noon. Contact Allyson Steele to reserve a space.
