Winter Wellness Week
Winter Wellness Week 2019
Minneapolis Public Schools is planning for its third annual WINTER WELLNESS WEEK with a week-long virtual medal hunt, complete with rhyming clues, and themed days and events designed to foster a culture of social, emotional, and physical well-being across the district.
 
Join in the Winter Wellness fun with us! Take a photo, make a poster, or create a video, and use #mpswinterwellness on social media.
 
Monday Melt
Melt the cold weather away by starting the week with warm welcomes! Build an inclusive community by sharing some of yourself and listening to your peers. (see resources sidebar for SEL Toolkit)
 
Tall Sock Tuesday
Make sure you dress for being outside this winter! Sport your tall socks and your winter hat to show that being warm is oh so cool. Check out the Coats Hats & Gloves video created by Franklin MS to promote dressing for the weather. Health teachers and classroom teachers also have winter safety lessons that they can use to celebrate this day. (see resources sidebar)
 
Winter Walk Wednesday
Whether you celebrate walking to school or at school, this is the day to get outside and enjoy the magical winter light. Register your school now, and receive a prize pack with stickers and other goodies. Wednesday also kicks off our second True Food Taste Test of the school year! Visit our page to find out what we're making.
 
Health is in Your Hands Thursday
Did you know that hand washing is the single most important means of preventing the spread of infection? Today, count the number of times you wash your hands for at least twenty (20) seconds per time. (see resources sidebar) Thursday is also Minnesota Thursday at all of our schools!
 
 
Friendly Friday
Whether you are shoveling neighbor's sidewalks or helping one another during the school day, let's all practice random acts of kindness.
