staff at wellbeing workshop Through her wellbeing initiative, Cindy Goldberg has been hosting monthly stress-relieving events across the district. This month, Goldberg invited Glenside’s Won Institute to Cedarbrook for an all-day acupuncture event designed to enhance relaxation and reduce stress. Won’s Director of Clinical Education Doreen Lafferty brought a handful of colleagues to administer seated acupuncture designed for relaxation.

Monthly staff wellbeing events, such as Soul Collage in October, yoga in November and self defense in December , are offered to help staff unwind and designed to be moments of connection, curiosity and self-care, which are positive psychology based and meant to recharge.

The Won Institute has agreed to provide their acupuncture services at each of the district’s schools. Other upcoming staff wellbeing events include essential oils, watercolor, reiki, drumming circle and mindfulness in nature.
