Wellness Wednesdays

About Wellness Wednesdays

During this period of heightened need and virtual learning, DPS has committed a whole day for providing activities that support wellbeing. This space offers resources and ideas for teams as they plan for Wellness Wednesdays and other MTSS interventions.
