Are you ready for a fun challenge? Showcase your school/department spirit and creativity during distance learning.
As everyone engages in this new reality of online learning, the NBOE designated the week of (April 20-April 24) as Virtual Spirit Week. A different theme is featured each day, and everyone is invited to participate in the daily challenge- students, parents, teachers, principals, and staff!
Monday, April 20: Mindful Monday
Mindfulness brings notice to one’s thoughts and feelings as the individual is intentionally present in the moment. Embracing your inner peace can regulate emotions and self-awareness (a social and emotional learning competency). Practice mindfulness exercises throughout the day to draw attention to your state of mind. Check out these mindfulness activities shared by staff and students.
