The Connetquot school community came together to celebrate and educate one another on health and wellness during the district’s annual Community Wellness Day. This year’s event boasted 29 vendor tables, all focusing on different ways to be healthy. It was a great turn out with 21 student volunteers and more than 375 students and their families in attendance.

The day was filled with activities and exercise for kids, including making mini sand art and mindfulness jars. The event also included a family wellness workshop, yoga classes, mindfulness workshops and painting classes. Molloy College’s mobile health van provided blood pressure checks and raffles and prizes were offered through many generous donations.

The Mental Health Advisory Council brought the event to the Connetquot school community, and the Connetquot Public Library kindly offered a space to host the event.
