All Newton South students are required to complete five credits in Wellness in order to graduate. Ninth and tenth grade students are enrolled in core Wellness classes. Eleventh and twelfth grade are required to complete two capstone courses, one in each year. Capstone courses include Stress Management, Yoga/Pilates, Project Adventure, Sports Nutrition, Personal Fitness, and Global Games.
The Wellness Department encourages students to take courses beyond the minimum requirement to add balance throughout their academic day.
WELLNESS IN TIME OF COVID-19-LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES
We hope that you and your families are doing well during this challenging time. We are here to help you to engage and connect with us through healthy and fun activities while learning wellness concepts away from school. You are required to complete this work to the best of your ability and according to your current situation. Your wellness teachers are available to support you. Please let them know if there are things that challenge your ability to do your required work.
Check your class Schoology page for specific information and to find your Zoom meetings' links.
Below is a sample of NSHS Wellness Department offerings. This page is a good resource for your parents to learn about your classes and even try some of our activities!
Thinking of you.
