Family Wellness

The Family and Wellness Center is a comprehensive health and family support resource for students, families, and members of the school community. Its purpose is to promote physical, social, and emotional health and wellness. With sensitivity to the health needs, beliefs, and values of diverse populations, the Center will:

  • Facilitate the development of a strong school-parent community through workshops, lectures, and educational programs
  • Coordinate a "parent curriculum" that parallels the student's learning so that learning is extended and reinforced at home
  • Integrate a developmental guidance approach with the Multiple Intelligences curriculum, emphasizing physical, social, and emotional health and wellness
  • Be a consultant and resource to teachers on issues of health, intercultural training, and family support
  • Provide primary health care services for students, families, and members of the school community
  • Provide services to children with special health care needs in collaboration with families and school staff
  • Provide individual and group support to students who are experiencing social and emotional difficulties
  • Refer and coordinate with other community health and human services for the school community
