Beginning as a program for freshmen, the Harker Health and Wellness program has been greatly expanded for the 2009-10 school year to cover all four US classes. Sept. 2 was the first of five assembly days to be held throughout the year. On these assembly days, each class attends an assembly on a different topic related to physical, mental and academic well-being, such as study skills, college counseling, nutrition and fitness. Senior assemblies will feature guest alumni speakers to discuss life after high school, particularly college life and time management.
Following the assemblies, students are encouraged to speak with their advisors about the topics discussed. Health and Wellness assemblies will be held Nov. 8, Jan. 6, Feb. 24 and April 14. Dates are subject to change.
