As we head into the summer, more and more of our students will be in their cars. 20% of our students report texting and driving. This is a trend that we would like to alleviate and ensure our students at St. Mark's safety while they are not on campus.
Mission Statement: To create a community where all members have the essential tools to be their best selves, so that they can be physically, emotionally and socially prepared to make healthy lifestyle choices. To have a Wellness Program that educates and empowers everyone at St. Mark’s to be self-advocates as they journey towards leading lives of leadership and service.
Sleep is vital to your well-being, as important as the air you breathe, the water you drink and the food you eat. It can even help you to eat better and manage the stress of being a teen. Sleeping can help you perform better in academics, athletics and over all well being.
Faculty Assisting Student Team (FASTeam) is resource available to all St. Mark's students.
The purpose of FASTeam is to care for any St. Mark's student who may be struggling with a variety of different issues by using the appropriate health related supports. It is a non-disciplinary resource that you can use to ensure that your friends and peers are safe and have access to adult support.
In the St. Mark's Community, relationships are everything. As social media expands, it is important that we recognize that our words and presence on-line can negatively impact our students ability to socially and emotionally interact.
