Aug - Norman Well Lived
Welcome BHHS Returning & New Students! Happy Wellness Wednesday!
Let’s make WELLNESS the NORM @ BHHS
Your mental health and wellness is vital to your success at Beverly. The NormanAid Wellness Center (NWC) and my team are here to support YOU throughout your high school journey.
Starting high school or coming back after summer break can evoke a mix of emotions, ranging from anticipation to apprehension. The prospect of new schedules, classes, grades, and friends can be overwhelming and trigger anxious feelings. Remember, you're not alone in this experience.
Some exciting highlights for the 2023-2024 school year:
- FREE and confidential weekly, short-term, peer group is offered to all BHHS students.
- On campus appointments are available Monday - Friday from 8:30am- 3:30pm and virtual counseling sessions are available before and after school.
- Request Appointments at normanaidrequest.org
NormanAid’s Mindfulness is available to students before school, during nutrition or lunch breaks, and even during 7th period. Moreover, students have the privilege of spending 15 minutes within this haven during class hours once a week, upon receiving teacher approval. RELAX YOUR MIND and take a mental health break:
- Play a calming game
- Rest your worries
Students are invited to unwind and enjoy NormanAid’s mindfulness space during lunchtime every day of the week.
We organize meaningful & fun school-wide events and provide wellness education for students, parents and staff.
PE classes will incorporate a wellness curriculum created by NormanAid Wellness Center. Along with physical fitness, students will build their mental fitness through NormanAid’s Today Well Lived podcasts, speakers, interactive activities, videos and film screenings. Students will learn how to cope with stress, improve their physical health, productivity at school and relationships.
A successful and happy Norman lives by our Beverly Hills High School motto.
“Each to-day well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope.”
By focusing on mental and emotional health, you can achieve personal and academic aspirations.
