Kind words do not cost much. Yet they accomplish much.
~Blaise Pascal (French Mathematician, 1623-1662)
What this means is you do not have to buy gifts, flowers, or things to make somebody feel better or happy, just saying a few kind words can brighten their day. For example, telling a family member “Thank you for making dinner today” or “You have such a nice smile."

What is a COPE CAKE?
What is a COPE CAKE?
A cope cake is another way of saying coping skill.
A coping skill is something that makes me feel better when you are mad, worried or sad.
Some coping skills are healthy like going for a walk, taking deep breaths or taking a nap.
Some coping skills are unhealthy. Unhealthy coping skills are hitting, yelling or hurting yourself.
When you choose to do healthy coping skills you are making a good choice.
When you are calm you can return to what you were doing before you were upset.
When you use a healthy coping skill you will feel proud of yourself and those around you will be proud of you too! :)
Take a look at the “cope cake” activity link and coloring page and think about some healthy coping skills that you can use!
What is a career cluster?
Career clusters are a framework that allows us to examine areas of interest without having to choose a specific career right away.
Careers have been organized into 16 clusters based on common knowledge and similar skill requirements. Within each cluster there are pathways that break those careers down further into smaller groups. This week we will highlight the Law, Public Safety, Corrections, and Security cluster.
