Winter Wellness Welcome Back

Hackley started the new year on January 7 in the Johnson Center with an official Welcome Back from Head of School Michael Wirtz and Community Council President Zaya Gooding before launching into activities designed to exercise one particular dimension of wellness — cognitive/mental, physical, social, emotional or spiritual.  Enjoy these video highlights from the morning's work!
Our second graders report having a blast at this celebration of community wellness. They began the day by participating in some of their favorite games like: rock, paper, scissors, a football throw, the long jump, and bean bag toss. Afterwards, they took to their writing journals to reflect on the inspiring words of Mr. Wirtz and Zaya Gooding and wrote down some health and wellness reflections from this incredible event. Some reflections were:
  • *”It reminded me how to keep everything healthy including the mind.
  • * “I loved learning about the body!”
  • *“I loved learning about the different types of wellness.”
