Long Beach’s Lindell Elementary School held its annual Wellness Fair on Feb. 18 with students and staff members enjoying a day of physical activity, mindfulness, nutrition, and safety.

This year, participants rotated around different areas in the building, including the auditorium, gym, small and big libraries, the art room and various classrooms for a series of 20-minute sessions about health and wellness. Members of the community and staff contributed their expertise in a variety of wellness areas. Among them were nutritionists, yoga and dance instructors, physical therapists, doctors and fitness professionals.

Students learned techniques to ensure proper hydration, nutrition, dental hygiene, bus and community safety, heart health and breathing. They practiced yoga moves and Irish Dance, engaged in a Drums Alive activity, competed in relays, took on a scavenger hunt challenge and much more. Social emotional learning was also incorporated into the theme with a kindness lesson, as well as mindfulness strategies.

Special thanks to the Wellness Committee, school staff and Lindell PTA for coordinating a noteworthy day of fun activities to stay healthy.
