WELLNESS AT HOME
(Content created by Kristi Birch, LCSW)
We miss you, and hope you are doing well! Earlier in the week we sent out a newsletter that reviewed some great tools and resources to help you navigate distance learning. As we enter into this new adventure of distance learning, we want to continue to provide support and increase your access to social-emotional learning opportunities. We will continue to send out newsletters on a weekly basis throughout the school closure. Please remember we are here to help and support. Take care and be safe.
Thinking of you!
