Wellness Screen Program for Third Graders

Connected Community Wellness Screen Program for Third Graders
Posted on 10/07/2019

During the upcoming 2019-2020 school year, every third-grade student will have the opportunity to participate in the Connected Community Wellness Screen Program. Screening will be provided by Samaritan Counseling Center. Our goal is to have 100% of our third-grade students participate!


What is the Wellness Screen Program?


The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends an annual mental health screen for all school-age students. Mental health check-ups are just as important as annual physical checkups! The Wellness Screen Program uses a nationally recognized, evidenced-based mental health screen to identify common mental health concerns. Parents will receive additional information by letter and email. The Wellness Screen Program is FREE, confidential and voluntary.
