Collective Care Series Supports Staff Wellness

Over the next few years, the Office of School Support is hosting a new series of staff wellness activities funded through the American Rescue Plan (ARP).

Throughout the next few years, the Office of School Support will offer a new series of district-sponsored wellness activities for staff. Schools also have the opportunity to create staff relaxation spaces, or participate in relationship building and wellness activities as a school community. Join us for upcoming opportunities!

Why this series? 

Every member of the SPPS Community plays a role in cultivating collective wellness and a healthy school and district culture. As we increase our collective wellness, it will improve relationships among adults, in classrooms, in schools, and in district offices and help improve school and district climate. This is at the root of Social Emotional Learning (SEL).  

Though we have all been affected in different ways, we’ve all faced challenges in the past few years. When we acknowledge the harm of negative culture and the history of trauma and systemic racism, recognize recent tragedy and losses, when we make changes allowing people to heal, only then can we move forward with a vision that cultivates wellness for individuals leading to strong relationships.  

"It is crucially important for us to take care of ourselves and for our school systems to take care of us so that we can take care of our students. Essentially, the first relationship we have is with ourselves”  --Dr. Dena Simmons (from here)
