On June 27th, SMAS held a Wellness Tabling Fair so morning students could learn about some of these resources. In the Fall, there will be a similar event for evening students.
Both students and staff learned a lot. Each of the organizations offers ways to be strong and healthy.
Here are the resources represented at the Tabling Fair:
