A group of student-athletes from Connetquot High School recently led a virtual presentation for fifth graders at the district’s John Pearl Elementary School, centered around how the sports experience has changed due to COVID-19 and how to focus on the positives in sports rather than the negatives. This was the first of a series of conversations the high schoolers will have with their younger peers this year, in an effort to mentor them in the area of athletics.

Students Focus on Health and Wellness

John Pearl Elementary School in the Connetquot Central School District recently held a Health and Wellness Week that focused on cultivating mindfulness, stress reduction and overall well-being among the students. The week’s programming included a nature scavenger hunt for fifth graders, designed to encourage the students to be mindful and experience the moment and space around them. Another key aspect of Health and Wellness week was guided meditations and yoga practices, some of which were led by Youth and Family Services Coordinator Heather Fuller, some of which were incorporated into physical education classes by teacher Nicholas Sturtz, and others that were led by classroom teachers as “brain breaks” in between lessons.

Students were also given a different individual challenge each day, such as "take 20 minutes to participate in physical activity/exercise" and "list 3 things you are thankful for” as well as family challenges such as "have a family board game night" and "take a walk as a family." Health and Wellness Week was a great success overall and revitalized the students to take on the rest of the school year.
