Celebration Of The Arts 2022 - Wellness Walk

A piece of our #COTA2022 was a Wellness Walk. Thanks, Kaitlyn Dressel for developing this idea into a cool added feature for our partnership with Guidance Department. Kaitlyn had her students create pieces of art to leave along this walk. We had a Wellness Library where you could take something or leave something for someone else. You can learn more about this at this link: Wellness Library "Grab N Go" Art Kits
This was added for us to make sure we take a mental break from any stressors of the day. You could take a short walk or a long hike depending on how much time you had. This trail links up to Maclay Gardens and oozes possibilities for all involved depending on your athletic level.

Each door in middle school had one of these hearts. Middle School students helped me paint them with left over paint and some free time at the end of a few classes. I was on campus last week and several were still hung up! They were placed on offices around campus too!

This is a great way to involve many departments on your campus. Appreciate Upper School Art with Kaitlyn for taking the lead on this one and making it so successful that we will keep it for next year!

A huge reminder to  stop and smell the roses so to speak, right?!? Ya feel me? You only get one life, slow down and enjoy it.
