Wellness Wilderness Wednesdays

Wilderness Wednesday


During the COVID-19 school closure DPS came up with “Wellness Wednesdays” to give staff and students a screen break during our year of online learning. When we came back to school in person, we noticed a different need, and this is when Wilderness Wednesdays were born. Wilderness Wednesday is an opportunity Merrick-Moore invented with the purpose of creating intentional time in our weekly schedule for students to experience new, different, hands-on learning activities that can promote cultural awareness, community involvement, STEAM activities, teamwork/collaboration and outdoor learning. It’s also very fun.
