Wellness Library

As part of our Health Promoting Schools funding, our school has started to compile a Wellness section in our school library. We have resources to support many different types of wellness: mental, financial, interpersonal, health, etc. This section is open to students, staff and parents who wish to sign out some resourceful reading information. You just need to stop by our Library and speak with Mrs. Wrye and she will assist you on borrowing the materials. We have the following selection of books to date:
