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.
This academic year, The Wellness Department pursues to integrate healthy ideals into our
St. Mark's community. X-block represents an opportunity for our students to destress and spend time gathering with friends, sharing a conversation with a faculty member or getting ahead on homework. In this time period, the Wellness Department wants to introduce some areas of practice that would help our community have the physical, mental, and emotional skills
to enjoy their best experience in a demanding prep school environment.
15-40 Connection joined our community Friday, January 25th. 15-40 connection talks about the importance of early detection and what warning signs of cancer might look like. They speak about the importance of what your great feels like and how small things that are out of the ordinary for a two weeks period of time might be just what you need to seek out the advice of your primary care physician. When you speak with your doctor you must be honest. This presentation is part of the New Fifth Form Wellness Forum, but because of the importance of the message, 1 out of 2 males and 1 out of 3 females will be diagnosed with cancer.
On Friday evening, December 7, the SMLeads program welcomed Andrew Onimus from "Minding Your Mind" as a guest speaker.
