Your Daily Break
A dash of Mindfulness-based SEL for everyone!
August! Don't go!
Mid-August has always had that "Sunday Night feel". There is a whole other layer this year and we are holding you in our thoughts as preparations for a new kind of start to the year is before us. We will continue to provide opportunities for self-care and inner reflection and SEL implementation throughout the year in this bi-weekly newsletter.
Be well & breathe,
Liane Benedict & Kate Ginney

"Reading the roadmap alone will be helpful, but it will be more powerful when you process its contents with a broader team". It is recommended you use the organizer tool with your team to preview the sixteen sections of the CASEL toolkit, rank your priorities on a scale of 1 (most immediate) to 3 (this can come later), divide the prioritized sections among your team, and make notes of the action steps you may take and the tools you would like to use or adapt as you make your way through this roadmap.
Before you dive in, it is important that you set the tone for your own thinking and conversations with your team. Take five minutes to think through the five reflection prompts below. Once you have made your way through the prompts, share your thoughts, questions, and concerns with your team members.
