With the success of PUSD high school wellness centers and the programming they offer, a large need is seen to expand to our middle schools, so that all of our secondary students are having their socio-emotional needs met. In our district, the Wellness Centers are a quiet, safe place where students can go to self-regulate, decompress, de-stress, have a mindful moment, and/or practice evidence-based self-care strategies. To learn more about wellness programming in PUSD, please click here.
At PUSD, PPIE currently supports:
  • A district Wellness Website with a wealth of information and resources for parents, students and staff
  • Established Wellness Centers at both high schools (Amador and Foothill).
  • A full time classified Wellness Center Support Specialist (WCSS) at both comprehensive high schools
  • Certificated Support Counselors at both comprehensive high schools

During this giving season, please consider a year-end gift to help us reach our goal of $75,000 to expand our wellness support programming to reach more students, who need it now more than ever. Please visit ppie.org/donate to make your tax deductible donation.
