Wellness Department

Facts - Feelings - Possibilities

The L-S Wellness program is our health and physical education department with a progressive holistic approach. Our Department seeks to provide a balance between the expression of individuality, a responsible concern for the rights and needs of others, and the opportunity to examine and monitor one’s wellness. We integrate health, physical education, adventure education and experiential education into a Wellness Curriculum.

Our Wellness Curriculum is designed to develop the social and emotional learning (SEL) of our students. Students acquire a variety of skills including resiliency, empathy, goal setting, and responsible decision making. The Wellness Department gives students an opportunity to understand that all components of Wellness are interconnected and of equal importance.

Through a variety of required and elective courses, students experience and learn the impacts of numerous wellness themes on regular physical activity, healthy food and sleep choices, self-care and advocacy, mindfulness, play and many more.

Within the Wellness Curriculum, students will:

  • Become an expert on ourselves.
  • Recognize that we are not alone in the world.
  • Understand that the world is constantly changing and so are we.
  • Practice self-acceptance and self-responsibility.
