Hawking Wellness
[Page Under Construction]

Welcome to the Hawking Wellness page!  Hawking is committed to the optimal development of every student.  We believe that for students to have the opportunity to achieve personal, academic, developmental, and social success, we need to create a positive, safe, and health-promoting environment at every level, in every setting, throughout the school year.  To achieve this goal, we promote wellness in many areas, including healthy eating, physical activity, social-emotional wellness, outdoor activities, responsible use of digital technology and more. 
You can learn more about our goals, initiatives and events on this page.

Wellness Committee

The Hawking Wellness Committee takes the lead in implementing our Wellness goals as set forth in Hawking's Wellness Policy.  Parents, guardians and interested community members are welcome to participate in the Hawking Wellness Committee.

Staying Active

Hawking also strives to keep its students healthy through physical activity.  In addition to providing age-appropriate physical education, Hawking encourages physical activity through its after-school program and sports/activity clubs.  For additional information, click the button below.

Outdoor Activities in Nature

Hawking promotes outdoor nature-based activities for its students (and their families) because those activities increase children's cognitive performance and creativity while reducing their anxiety, negative thinking and stress.  For additional information, click the button below.

Healthy Eating

Hawking is committed to ensuring that all students are provided with healthy food and beverage choices, whether through the school lunch & breakfast programs, classroom celebrations or other school events, as well as classroom education about making healthy nutritional choices.   For additional information, click the button below.

Social-Emotional Wellness

Hawking places a high priority on supporting its students' social and emotional wellness, which allows them to focus better on their school work, develop skills to communicate effectively, and have improved overall wellness now and throughout their lives.  For more information, click the button below.

Digital Tech and Social Media

Hawking promotes the safe and responsible use of digital technology.  Digital technology can be very helpful educational tool, but excessive use of mobile devices by children - particularly excessive social media use - has detrimental effects on their well-being.  For additional information, click the button below.
