ADVISORY AGENDA 4.2.20 (Day 3)

“If you gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. you are able to say to yourself, “I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.” You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” -Eleanor Roosevelt

***Please complete the Remote Learning Survey by clicking on the link:

(From Sydney Wood and Hannah Shiffert) This was a part of our “Triumph of the Commons” project in our AP Environmental Science class, in which we had to do a community service project that related to the environment.

We chose to plant a garden in our backyards at home and donate some of the crops to a food bank that otherwise would not get any fresh vegetables. In addition, during this unusual time, we wanted people to know the importance of gardening and how it is beneficial to human health and the environment. We were planning on sharing this flyer with the people in which we donated the crops to, but due to the unprecedented times, that won’t be able to happen. The flyer mentions both the importance of gardening, along with the health benefits of some of the vegetables that we were going to plant.

Hello Students (From Mrs. Hoffman)

I hope that you are doing as well as possible and that you find some comfort in knowing that you are not alone in how you may be feeling, any range or combination of: annoyed, anxious, bored, fine, lonely, sad, mad or glad (or anything else!).

-If you would like to connect, please set up a 15 or 30 minute appointment through this link and I will confirm with a Webex link. Please indicate your preference, call or video.

-Be assured that the office space I have set up at home is in a private area of my house, with a noise cancelling machine outside the door, I use headphones to ensure privacy.

In the meantime, here is some Virtual EncourageMINT! 

 Feel what you feel and try not to stay stuck

Taking a few deep breaths (1-5) can help you feel more in control, reset your nervous system and help reconnect your mind and body

Remember what resources and tools work for you to take care of yourself:

-Physical activity, talking/videoing with friends, being in nature, listening to music, LAUGHING, journaling, expressing yourself creatively: drawing, dancing, singing, playing an instrument, writing, etc., (insert other healthy coping skills here________________).

 Please e-mail me if you would like written, phone or video encouragement.
