It is a place that feels a little bit like home. That’s the idea behind a new Wellness Center at Oquirrh Elementary School. The purpose of the Wellness Center is to give students a place where they can go for a 10-minute break to relieve stress or worries and get back to their classrooms and successful learning. With the help of a social-emotional learning coach in the Wellness Center, students are learning to identify, express and manage their emotions for a happier, healthier experience in school. They also learn the importance of self-confidence, recognizing their strengths and resilience.
The Wellness Center is a calm, relaxing and welcoming place for all students throughout the school year.
