You Matter Moments
The health and well-being of our D.C. Everest students and staff remain a top priority and we are working diligently to expand conversations around wellness and engage our students, families, staff, and community in those conversations. Expanding from our Mental Wellness Day from the 2021-2022 school year we will have a YOU MATTER moment during every quarter!
We recognize that when our students have a sense of belonging at school — and, importantly, at least one positive relationship or connection with someone at school — it can play an important role in their success. Our goal is to help students realize how much they matter within their school community and how important they are to our broader community. We also will help them identify someone they feel they can connect with at school and whom they can turn to for support.
This school year we have created a Wellness Course at each of our secondary schools. Students, Parents / Guardians, and staff are enrolled in the courses. In this space, we focus on health literacy and You Matter Moments in an effort to educate and build a healthier society for all stakeholders. The intention is to help create a space where everyone has access to school and community wellness resources, the time to engage, and knowledge on how to practice physical and mental well-being. To begin the journey of making lasting social change, we’ve adopted the Apple "Help Shape A Healthier Society" Challenge so we can help shape a healthier society by exploring mind, body, and health literacy.
