To kick off the new year, Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School will be hosting a series of webinar-based seminars that match the content that we teach our students, but is tailored for parents and guardians!
Gwynedd's Wellness Wheel curriculum provides our students with interactive and engaging lessons that focus on physical and mental health, self-awareness, leadership, diversity, equity & inclusion, and many practical life skills that provide balance – all of which are essential for success at Gwynedd and beyond.
Now, you are invited to explore some of that same content, but customized for adults and where applicable, structured in a way that facilitates nuanced conversations about these topics with your teens at home. Some topics will feature information that will make parents, teachers and guardians more aware of circumstances that could threaten their teen’s sense of self and well-being, while others may offer information that supports effective parenting and/or partnering with Gwynedd staff and faculty. Our Wellness Wheel curriculum is informative and engaging, so we hope that you will join us!
