Wellness Center

Our Westside Wellness Center is open! 

Mrs. Kieffer has created a place where students who are feeling anxious, stressed, disruptive, sad, angry, sensory overload, etc. (all those big feelings) can come for a 10 minute reset. Students are never in trouble when they come to the Wellness Center.

We have great tools (not toys) students can use to self regulate.  Some of the tools we offer are - 

  • Puzzles
  • Kinetic Sand
  • Art - watercolors, markers, crayons, sketch tablets
  • Books
  • Teepee w/ sensory lights
  • Sensory Fish Tank
  • Calm Music
  • Duplos
  • Puppet Theater
  • Memory Card Games

The Wellness Center is open during school hours.

Here is a news story that KSL did a few years ago about the positive effect wellness centers have in schools.
