The Middle School Wellness Program is built around the needs, as well as interests, of the students. The program follows the Massachusetts Health Curriculum Frameworks, which include physical education and health education. Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices towards achieving a more successful existence. An individual’s wellness occurs when they are committed to a continuous, lifelong process of choosing a lifestyle based on healthy attitudes and actions. The Silver Lake community is committed to helping our students achieve wellness through coordinated efforts of health education and physical education.
