While remaining at home like so many others during these challenging weeks, some members of the St. Mark's community are using their time to help make a difference. Two from St. Mark's—a student and a staff member—are among those making face masks to help address the shortage of those essential items, supporting the needs of health care workers and medical facilities.
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.
WINTER BLUES? Many students find Window 3 to be the longest and hardest window of the year. Combined with the lack of sunshine and warmth, increased stress can lead to negative mental health consequences. Sometimes this causes what is known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD, a fitting acronym), or Seasonal Depression.
This stall talk was made by Lina Zhang and Bethany Batista. Feel free to continue the conversation with them!
On Wednesday, December 18, the St. Mark's Wellness program sponsored the 4th annual Puppy Pet. Dogs belonging to faculty, staff, families, and other members of the St. Mark's community gathered on the Athletic Quad, where they were greeted by students taking a break during Assessment Week.
