Health & Wellness

Ridgefield Academy Health and Wellness Worry Wall
The Ridgefield Academy Wellness Program is specifically designed to support the social-emotional growth of our Middle and Upper School students. The workshop-based program is implemented both by Ridgefield Academy faculty and outside contributors. Each scheduled workshop has been built to address the specific needs of the developmental age; however, the program also supports responsive programming around specific grade level, gender, and community needs. All workshops are interactive with students engaging in discussion, role-play, and other hands-on activities.

Health & Wellness in Lower School
Feel good Fridays began as a way for our Lower School community to come together and feel good! Katie Spiro, Grade 2 teacher, sparked the idea last year and has had tremendous support from the entire faculty in carrying out each of these special Fridays. As a faculty, the goal of Feel Good Friday is for the children to build relationships with each other, connect with teachers, and celebrate a month of hard work. So far our themes have included peer appreciation, animal mania, thankful hearts, hot chocolate and holiday reads, sports and fitness, and there is more to come!
