Seventh graders learn about healthy visions

In early December, seventh graders took part in the Healthy Visions program, which teaches adolescents about a variety of social-emotional and health topics over the course of one week. “Healthy Visions provided our seventh grade students with the necessary and fundamental skills to navigate their interpersonal relationships in a fun and engaging manner. Our students left the sessions with increased relational knowledge that will serve them throughout their lives,” Middle School counselor Dayna Sargent said. The organization’s facilitators used games and ice-breakers to help students feel comfortable talking about difficult subjects such as healthy versus unhealthy relationships and boundaries, effective communication techniques for navigating conflict, setting limits, and expressing oneself.
