Wellness Center

Fall 2020 Distance Learning

The Galileo Wellness Team misses you!

We miss having you drop in to say hi, checking in during passing period while you grab a cup of water and snacks, hearing about your classes, clubs you're in, how you're doing and the accomplishments you're having as you navigate high school!

We are currently experiencing a global pandemic which has changed the lives of everyone we know dramatically and has caused tremendous loss and stress in our communities.

While we all do our part in slowing the rate of COVID and doing our best in distance learning, we know that it is not easy and that you may be feeling overwhelmed, stressed and hurt, or maybe you're feeling motivated and empowered to create and participate in change.

The Wellness Center is open and is here to support you as we continue this journey together!
