The Importance of Student Wellness

A local Hilliard business, Mat Happy Yoga, worked with Alton Darby students on the “Green Dream Team” this month, teaching students ways to create healthy lifestyles. Third grade students in Mrs. Kleman’s room, fourth graders in Mrs. Bolyard’s room and fifth graders from Mrs. William’s room are learning the importance of taking care of our bodies and minds. Without taking care of yourself, we can’t take care of others, our community and our world. Yoga is just one of the tools we can teach students about to enable them to take care of their minds and bodies so that they can be at their best. Working with our local business community is what gives us the opportunity to provide experiences to our students they might not have outside school.
