Northern Valley Regional High School
Announces Wellness Fair
Dr. Timothy Gouraige, Principal of Northern Valley Regional High School at Demarest and Dr. Bruce Sabatini, Principal of Northern Valley Old Tappan would like to announce that as part of our Social/ Emotional Learning Initiative, the Northern Valley Regional High School District will be hosting its first ever Wellness Fair. The Wellness Fair will take place on the mornings on the following dates:
October 10, 2017 at Northern Valley Regional High School at Demarest
October 11, 2017 at Northern Valley Regional High School at Old Tappan
In addition to attending an assembly by Dr. Matt Bellace, Psychologist and National Youth Speaker, entitled "A Better High," students will have the opportunity to sign up for two presentations focused on wellness topics that interest them. Presentations will include topics such as Mindfulness, Yoga, Healthy Relationships, Healthful Eating and Stress Management.
Dr. Matt Bellace also will conduct a parent program, entitled, "Supporting Teens in Reducing Their Stress (and ours)" the evening of October 11th in the Northern Valley - Old Tappan HS Auditorium at 7:00 pm. According to Dr. Matt Bellace, "Young people need to feel empowered in their schools and communities. It is not enough to ask them to stay away from drugs and alcohol, we need to show them there are positive things they can do for themselves and others."
Please join us for this important parent program.
