A Message from Dr. Manola

How did it become mid-April already? While we were teased with some amazing weather followed by a week of cold temperatures, it’s starting to feel more and more like Spring every day. We are excited to join you this morning and bring you today’s #leydenpride East Leyden Parent Bulletin.

Incredibly, we are quickly approaching the end of this school year, and that’s certain to come with many of the same feelings we have felt throughout the past 12 months; we are looking forward to what’s ahead, but knowing there is still a lot to do and many uncertainties before we get there. While we continue to feel this, we are also so, so confident that our students and families will continue to do the amazing work that everyone does! Keep it up - you are almost there.

Ahead of the weekend, we appreciate you taking some time to review some updates and information below. As always, please let us know what we can help with and if you need anything at all. Have a great Friday and a wonderful couple of days. Stay well!

Dr. Manola

East/West Student Services is thrilled to share the brand new Leyden Virtual Calming Room. This resource was developed by a group of East/West counselors and social workers to support faculty/staff, students, and families through a time that remains challenging for many. The Calming Room features the following topics:

  • Coloring and Creativity
  • Exercise
  • Guided Meditation
  • Live Animal Cameras
  • Mindfulness
  • Puzzles and Games
  • Sounds and Music
  • Helpful Smartphone Apps
  • Visual Relaxation
  • Yoga

We hope you find this to be an effective, useful resource and share with anyone who could benefit from some support. We will have this accessible on our websites and newsletters as well.

Thank you all for your partnership in supporting our students' mental health and well-being!
