Play Games During Lunch; Join the Counselors for Wellness Wednesdays
Remember recess in elementary school? You can have a similar experience during the school counselor sponsored “Wellness Wednesday” a couple times a month.
The counselors want to have fun activities kids can do during lunch at least a couple days during a month to get students off their phone. Jen Scheffner, a counselor at Alta said the purpose is to help promote mental health and give students a chance to do something positive. “We want to provide students opportunities to connect with others without their phones.”
Lunch is only thirty minutes so it should be taken advantage of. Too many kids stay on their phones during the lunch break, so the counselors are hoping students will put phones aside and do something active.
Times can get stressful and some students don’t know how to regulate stress. This is a good time to loosen up and have some fun. These Wednesday’s could be a nice mental health break. It’s time to get off our phones and have some fun!
