The Student Wellness Center is located in the 800 wing between the Student Center and the Copy Center & Staff Lounge and is home to CASSY.  You can reach us through one of the two side doors:  one is adjacent to the new Staff Lounge, and the other is adjacent to the Copy Center.  Here, you will find a calming space where students can talk with a therapist and/or take a break from the hectic daily schedule of school; recharge; and then return to class.  

Student Wellness Center

The Student Wellness Center is currently supporting the "Just Learn It." campaign by housing its raffle tumbler.  Here is a description of the Just Learn It campaign from our principal's August 30th Friday Letters for Families:

"Today marked our first announcement of recognition for the "Just Learn It." campaign, which focuses on encouraging and nurturing grit and growth mindset. ...  Each week, we will recognize one or two winners and award them with a $5 gift card to Starbucks, Yogurtland, and other merchants frequented by our students.  Students can be a part of the "Just Learn It." raffle by demonstrating their perseverance, hard work, determination, and focus on learning.  Staff who recognize these fantastic, life-long traits can give the student a "Just Learn It." card and students can take the signed card to the Student Wellness Center to drop it onto the raffle tumbler."  Greg Louie
