January was Wellness Month for staff at JHB. Each week focused on a different aspect of making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life.
There were four weekly health-based challenges: hydration, exercise, mindfulness and sleep. Each Friday, a wellness newsletter was sent to staff informing them of the weekly challenge. Additionally, all staff members were invited to a “Move-It Monday” activity which included creating an indoor walking route, a yoga class led by school social worker KC Beaupain, a zumba class led by Krystal Blaisdell, and a paint afternoon led by art teacher Heidi Roberts.
Staff members were treated to a “Water Bar” and “Yogurt and Fruit Boats.” New books that focused on ways to increase peace and serenity, in our lives here at school as well as at home, were purchased with the “5-2-1-0 Let’s Go” grant and added to the staff room library.
A month that can sometimes feel like it’s never going to end turned into days full of peace and serenity!
