Wellness News

Updates NRS classes:
In this year's second nutrition class Ashley Maddock discussed sugar content in foods we eat daily. This was to show students how to moderate their intake of natural vs. processed sugar, and how much individuals are supposed to intake daily. The students had to look at their daily snacks and drinks and calculate how much sugar they ate in that specific setting. From there they can understand where they might be over or under eating sugar. At the end of Ashely's presentation, the students were asked to make suggestions on how St. Mark's could provide healthier options in the dining hall.

Last Friday, Officer Landry from the Southborough Police Department continued the conversation about vaping in our community. Officer Landry spoke to IV Formers about the recent rise in illnesses related to vaping and what the new laws look like in Massachusetts and how Governor Baker has a four-month ban on vaping products.

Josh Bergers '22 once again led the way for St. Mark's, staying close to Lawrence's top runner and finishing second overall (both Josh and Lawrence's #1 broke the course record). Nick Haugen '21 came in next for St. Mark's, followed by captain Blake Gattuso '20, James Lammert '21, Nick Sparrow '22, and assistant captain Will Osborne '20 (Aditya Mynampaty '20 dropped out of the race).
