PPHS Wellness Center Opening!

NEW PALISADES PARK HIGH SCHOOL WELLNESS CENTER!

On May 15, Palisades Park hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the opening of the new Wellness Center at the Palisades Park Jr./Sr. High School.  The Wellness Center will provide the services of a school psychologist in a drop-in setting to offer immediate interventions and support for students who perceive themselves as in crisis or just need to talk.

Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Joseph Cirillo, said, “Opening a wellness center for our students was a top priority for me because research documents that a positive school climate leads to decreased school violence and aggression, increased academic achievement and improved attitudes among students and staff.”

Joining the celebration was Bergen County Executive, James J. Tedesco who underscored Bergen County’s efforts to expand the Stigma-Free initiative.  “I applaud the Palisades Park School District for joining the Stigma-Free movement and facilitating the physical and emotional health of its students, educators and staff.”
