What is Spartans PAUSE?

What is Spartans PAUSE?

Created and funded by the PTSA, Spartans PAUSE is an ongoing, close collaboration among the PTSA, school administration, staff, ASB and community partners. During monthly Spartans PAUSE days, students will be greeted in the morning with nutritious snacks and 1-2 activities will be offered during lunch (see partial list below). The PAUSE team tries to select activities that are inclusive where all students can participate even just for a few minutes during lunch.
Why Spartans PAUSE?

Why Spartans PAUSE?

Through Spartans PAUSE, we hope students will feel more connected and supported for their overall well-being. We also hope to provide opportunities for students to develop life skills that will serve them beyond the school years, like self-care, balancing work and play, creating healthy relationships, and strengthening their sense of connection, belonging and community involvement.
