Positive choices, healthy habits and a bit of fun were all part of Wellness Week at Prodell Middle School.

Coordinated by the physical education department, the week started with an assembly on cyberbullying and diversity and proceeded with daily fun activities in physical education classes, including country line dancing, mindfulness, kickboxing and yoga. PTO members brought in lunches with nutritious and healthy food. Wellness Week allows students to experience different fitness and health-related activities with the goal of having students learn to be more emotionally and physically well

According to physical education teacher Allison DeMarco, the students were encouraged by the theme of “to be healthy as a whole, mental wellness plays a role.”

To culminate the mental health unit, the students participated in hands-on relaxation stations where they worked on crosswords and other puzzles, coloring and clay work and guided meditation.

The school thanks community members Melissa DelGuidice and Michele Loesch; secretary Rosalie Burke and teachers Katie Peters and Melissa Stallone for their involvement in making the program a success.
