On Monday afternoon, November 13, St. Markers helped get UNICEF's "Move the World" Workout for Water benefit off to an early start with an exercise event in the Armour Cage.
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.
The wellness department is in the process of making changes to try and address the physical, mental and emotional well-being of our students here at St. Mark's. The first alteration was moving from a committee to a department. With this, the department has been meeting on an every other week basis to focus on the area of needs.
St. Mark's School believes in three essential tenets of community living—Respect, Honesty, and Safety and expects students to abide by its rules and parents to support its policies. [Major School Rules at SM]
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.
