Hopkins Public Schools believes that actively teaching students how to be well leads to a strong successful community, and active, engaged learners. Wellness is for everyone, and HEF is partnering with District leadership to establish a cohesive wellness program, solidifying and expanding what is already being done throughout our schools. This program includes training in ‘Mind Up’, Yoga Calm, Mindfulness, and trauma sensitive instruction for teachers and staff to use in their classrooms. We know that social and emotional wellbeing has a direct impact on student learning. By helping the whole student to thrive, we increase their ability to concentrate, to meet challenges, to develop resilience, and to enjoy life-long success.
