Health & Wellbeing Benefits
The School strives to encourage and support the individual wellbeing and resilience of the faculty and staff who contribute to our mission, purpose and daily work. We desire for each individual to nourish their physical, emotional, mental, spiritual and social health. Not only is that best for us all as individuals, but as we care for our own body, mind, and spirit, we also build a stronger school community where we can all thrive and best serve our students and their families.
