Wellness Wednesdays and Wellness Resources for FamiliesWellness Wednesdays
Our Wellness Committee is hoping to turn the District Purple for the Day on Friday, February 12 as we celebrate P.S. I Love You Day 2021! P.S. I LOVE YOU DAY was started 11 years ago by Brooke Dipalma in West Islip, New York after losing a classmate and her father to suicide. She chose the color purple to represent this day and asks that other communities and schools wear purple on 2-12-21. Wearing purple will be our reminder that we, in fact, are not alone. What started 11 years ago in West Islip has now turned into a worldwide day of celebration and recognition. Click here to learn more about P.S. I Love You Day.
When NSCSD school buildings had to close their doors to students and staff in the Spring of 2020, the District started "Wellness Wednesdays" as a way of pulling families together in spite of COVID-19. As the 2020-2021 school year progresses, we are feeling the need to connect more than ever, so we've gotten the "Wellness Wednesdays" Band back together. This website will be our way of sharing resources, information and importantly YOUR thoughts, photos and artwork.
We will send out a topic of the week with resources and ideas for our students, staff and families. We want to hear back from you and are working on finding some new tools for interactive discussions. In the meantime, we'd love it if you would share on our social media sites (Facebook or Twitter with @NSyracuseCSD) using the hashtag #NSCSDWellness.
Family Wellness Website
It has been said that “You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.” Despite feeling overwhelmed and uncertain, we have been strong and started a brand new school year like no other.
As we navigate this journey together, we want to focus on the wellness of our students and their families. Toward that end, we have started our Family Wellness website - a place to check in for physical and mental wellness resources, ideas for fun and strategies for stress management and self-care.

The site will be evolving as the year progresses and we need your input to know what is working and what isn’t. We will be exploring ideas for sharing thoughts and photos so we can document this year together…as the community called the North Syracuse Central School District!
