Health & Wellness Elective Proving Effective

Did you know that we began offering electives at CICS Irving Park this year for 7th and 8th grade students? Kids in our health & wellness class, pictured above, are realizing the important role that social-emotional learning plays in their academic success. Ms. Gurwin leads the quarter-long class in which students tackle a different topic each week in order to develop strategies that will benefit their overall well-being. For instance, students have practiced yoga recently to help find a sense of calm and peace. They also keep a daily journal that documents their progress toward several health goals, personalized for each student!
