About the Wellness Initiative

Rippowam Cisqua School launched a school-wide wellness initiative in August, 2017. Wellness is defined as an “active process through which people become aware of, and make choices toward, a more successful existence.” (National Wellness Institute, n.d.) Inspired and informed by this definition and the six-dimension model of wellness proposed by the National Wellness Institute, Brooks Eleck, Iman Rasti, and Nicole Levy, RCS Wellness Co-Directors, have set out to raise awareness and build a common language around this theme for the entire community. To that end, they ran a workshop for the entire faculty and staff in August and a wellness workshop for parents in October. Our wellness team will continue with the initiative by running a series of wellness retreats on both campuses where students will participate in a variety of carefully designed activities to fully understand and experience different dimensions of wellness.
