The Zephyr Wellness program at Mahtomedi Public Schools helps students, staff, and community members learn, grow, and support each other on wellness issues. The Zephyr Wellness program includes a community conversation series, staff development to support student wellness, and co-located mental services in all of our school buildings. Our program’s scope is made possible because of the generosity of the Mahtomedi Area Educational Foundation (MAEF).

In February, the Zephyr Wellness program sponsored two family events with Erin Walsh of the Spark & Stitch Institute. If you missed the events, videos of the presentation are available for a limited time for viewing.

The Worried Brain: Moving Forward in Challenging Times (Held on February 1, 2022 - video available until March 6) Description: Understanding and identifying worries and that how we respond to them can either help us move forward or undermine our kids’ resilience when they need it most.

Hardwired to Connect: Why Connection Unleashes Learning and Growth (Held on February 15, 2022-video available until March 27). Description: Why connection matters, what does (and doesn’t) get in the way of connection, and how to create the kind of connected communities kids need to thrive.
