‘Wellness Day’ Promotes Healthy Choices
 
On the last school day before Chenango Valley Central School District’s Winter Recess began, Chenango Valley Middle School continued a tradition to promote healthy lifestyle choices.

As the school hosted its 13th annual "Wellness Day" on December 20, students had the opportunity to take part in a day-long series of workshops and activities focused on health and well-being. 

The event began with keynote speaker Jared Campbell, an award-winning singer/songwriter from upstate New York who reaches his audience through the power of music. His message focuses on topics including overcoming obstacles, anti-bullying, respect and leadership. Mr. Campbell asked students to think about the people who help guide and support them in life, and encouraged them to take the time to thank those individuals.

This inspiring presentation was followed by fun and informative workshops from the following presenters:
 
Sixth Grade
  • Mindfulness (Facilitated by Ms. Ann Szymaniak)
  • Self-Control 101 (Facilitated by Chenango Valley High School YES Leads)
  • Nutrition (Facilitated by Chenango Valley Teacher Mrs. Tara Shadduck)

  • Carbon Footprint (Facilitated by Chenango Valley Teacher Mrs. Stephanie Mika)

  • Body Image (Facilitated by Jessica Cohen from Binghamton University)
  • Financial Wellness (Facilitated by representatives from S.E.E.D. Planning Group)
