Spring Wellness Retreat

The North Merrick Mental Health and Wellness Coalition sponsored the first Wellness Retreat this spring for students in grades 4-6 and their special guests.  

The retreat was coordinated by teacher Amanda Hocevar and included an array of activities including: 

  • "Positivity Rocks!" with Jacqueline Sekunda, district guidance counselor, and Jeannette Gingrich, Fayette social worker;
  • Zumba with Mara Karfinkel, WINGS teacher;
  • Yoga with Breathe-N-Flow; and
  • Guided meditation, breath work and movement with Body & Brain.

Participants shared a morning of mindfulness and lots of smiles!  Students took home drawstring bags as a memento, filled with fidgets, coloring sheets, and a few activities to enjoy at home.
