Dear Jordan School District Students/Families,
We are pleased to announce our Second Annual Health and Wellness Day on Friday, February 10, 2023 for employees, students, and families. As a reminder, students will not attend school in person on this day.
On February 10, the District will be providing a K-12 Health and Wellness curriculum directly to parents and students so employees can focus on their own Health and Wellness.
We invite you to listen to the Superintendent’s latest “Supercast” podcast episode which describes a Health and Wellness Day lesson plan option for students.
What is Wellness Day?
An opportunity for JSD students and families to prioritize their personal wellness through at-home activities. All activities can be found at wellness.jordandistrict.org/resources. Lessons for each grade level, including lessons modified for students with accommodations, can be found on this page. Please visit wellness.jordandistrict.org/resources for all Wellness Day content.
All Wellness Day activities use JSD School Psychologist Casey Pehrson’s SELFIE model for personal wellness: Sleep, Exercise, Light, Fun, Interaction, and Eating right.
About The SELFIE Method
The SELFIE Method is an acronym for self-care and a powerful arsenal against depression. Feeling down and want to feel good? Or do you feel pretty good and want to feel even better? Take a SELFIE. No matter where you are on the well-being “scale,” this six-item toolkit will help you kick your energy, health, and happiness up a notch (or several).
Students will NOT attend school this day and are encouraged to work with their friends and family to complete wellness activities that support their personal wellness.
