Dear Klein ISD Parents & Students,

In these strange times, we can expect that kids are waking up on the wrong side of the bed and feeling anxious. The KISD Intermediate Lead Counselors will be collaborating to create a weekly newsletter offering some suggestions for a daily routines, ways to decrease stress and cope with the ever changing world.

We miss you!

Practicing Mindfulness

There's a lot of research out there that suggests that taking a few minutes every morning to clear your mind and breathe deeply helps to reduce stress. These are traumatic times, and meditation can help kids (and grownups) to start the day with calm.

Virtual Field Trip of the Week

Paris, France to tour The Louvre Museum.

Virtual Tour includes:

Egyptian Antiquities: Collections from the Pharaonic period

Remains of the Louvre's Moat

The Louvre was originally a fortress built by the French king Philippe Auguste. It was intended to reinforce the defenses that the king had ordered to be built in 1190 to protect Paris from attack via the Seine. Today, visitors can walk around the original perimeter moat and view the piers that supported the drawbridge.

Galerie d'Apollon

The Galerie d'Apollon, situated above the Petite Galerie, was destroyed by fire in 1661 and rebuilt by Le Vau. The ceiling, begun by Le Brun, is a homage to the Sun King, Louis XIV. The central panel, Apollo Slaying the Serpent Python, is by Delacroix (1851). The gallery was recently restored.
