Campfire Sing Along.jpeg

Friday, January 25, 2019 marks the first-ever Souhegan High School Wellness Day. Wellness Day or, #WD2019 is the brainchild of Souegan’s Social Worker Sheelu Joshi Flegal, Dean of Students Kelly Driscoll, and school Psychologist Traci Cote.  

Wellness Day is an entire day which Souhegan will be taking to “talk about finding balance and supporting each other in creating a sense of well-being in our daily lives” The goal of Wellness Day 2019 is to get rid of stigma about mental health and to create an environment in which mental health and self-care are a  prioritization no different from grades or physical health. Students participated in all sorts of activities, ranging from Nordic Skiing, Knitting, meditation, to a singalong complete with s’mores.
