Harry Potter Series - As Read By Rivervue Staff
Ms. Jones, Mrs. Russell, and Mrs. Carroll read through the first 3 books of the Harry Potter book series. Follow the links below and be transported to the magical world of Harry Potter by your fantastic Rivervue staff. All chapters will be added eventually.
Cube Solving with Mrs. Carroll
I will be sharing my notes from some of the cubes here as well as links to some of the best videos I've found for solving them. I recommend watching the videos first then using my notes as a reference. My notes are not comprehensive but are just so you don't have rewatch the video every time to find some of the algorithms. HAPPY CUBING EVERYONE! If you have questions, email me to request a google meet. We can walk through the cubes together.
EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING AND COMMUNITY RESOURCES
There is no normal response to an abnormal situation. Whether you are focusing on schoolwork, mental health, survival or just enjoying vacation time, everyone responds differently. That is normal.
Please fill out the needs assessment below if you feel you could use any additional support. Also included below are some items that might help through these uncertain days. Please reach out to me at anytime with any questions, concerns, or anything at all. You are an amazing and resilient human being that has made it through a whole lot.

Regular Routines: Try to keep up regular routines. Create a schedule for learning activities and relaxing and fun activities. This can help not only structure the day but help everyone to enjoy the days as well. Ideas for activities and entertainment are included at the end of the newsletter.
Connect with Others: Talk with people you trust about concerns or how you are feeling. Reach out on the phone to someone who might be isolated or struggling. This could be a wonderful opportunity to have long conversations that we otherwise wouldn't have time for.
Take Care of Yourself: Take a deep breath, stretch, stay active, eat well-balanced meals, get plenty of sleep, avoid drugs and alcohol for coping. It is really important to do the basics to take care of yourself, it can make all of the difference.
Take Breaks: Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.
Be a Role Model: Whether you are a parent or an older sibling try to model great habits. Take breaks, get lots of sleep, eating healthy, exercising and connecting with friends and families.
