The first ever family wellness fair is coming to Huntington High School on Saturday, March 28. Planning has been ongoing for many weeks. Organizers believe the event is shaping up to be something special.
The fair is free and open to the general public. It will run from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided to participants at the conclusion of the event.
Huntington High School Principal Brenden Cusack.
“This is a new event, organized by the Huntington High School shared decision making team,” Principal Brenden Cusack said. “It will feature a host of half hour presentations focusing on the overall wellbeing of mind, body and spirit.”
Presentations will include yoga, Zumba, creation of healthy snacks, mindfulness, tactics for relieving stress and anxiety, dangers of vaping, therapy dogs, positive body image and social media and more.
“This event is open to the whole district, including students of all ages, parents, family and friends,” Mr. Cusack said. “Many of the sessions would be great for all ages, but the target audience is kids in grades 4-12, along with their families.”
Efforts are underway to promote the fair and spread the word about it. Those efforts will eventually include sending out phone, text and e-mail blasts as the event nears.
Developing a wellness fair that culminates in a brunch in order “to engage parents and their children in a program that promotes healthy lifestyles through education and fun activities,” has been a prime goal of the high school’s SDM team, which includes Mr. Cusack, teachers Suzi Biagi and Brian Stellato and parent Edie Pullizzotto.
