Stilwell Monday Message

Weekly Student and Family Communication

Monday - 12/21/2020

Good Morning Stilwell students and families,

Today is our last day of school before winter break. Tomorrow will be a workday for our staff and we wish each of you a break full of rest and relaxation. Students will return to classes on January 5th and we will begin with an odd day.

Four Oaks Healthy Lifestyles Program Available to Support

West Des Moines Community Schools students may be experiencing academic, social, or emotional challenges this year. The district has partnered with Four Oaks to offer a proactive opportunity for students reacting to these challenges in unhealthy ways. The Four Oaks Healthy Lifestyles/Chemical Dependency program works with young adults to build healthy decision-making skills and reduce risk-taking behaviors like misusing alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, and other substances.

Adapted for social distancing and other COVID-19 safety measures, the program is now offered virtually. Education Liaison Darian Delaney works to build relationships with students and find out how to best connect and support them as they work towards making healthier choices and meeting their future goals. The Healthy Lifestyles program offers guidance and support without judgment.

Interested in connecting with Darian?

Students and parents can reach out at or 515-633-4569. You can also reach out to a school counselor for a referral or more information.
