Tips from our Mental Health Team!

Moodie Mondays (just for YOUTH)

This year has been hard. We asked kids and teens what might help... and they came up with the idea of "Moodie Mondays."

Moodie Mondays is an online space just for Ramsey County youth/teens. You can be moody- or not- no judgment here! It's a place for healing, belonging, and hope. It's a place to learn and share and make connections with other youth who care about mental health. Best of all--- it's new so you can make it whatever you want it to be.

Resources, Prizes and Gifts- YES! Each month, we'll get together through Zoom to watch a movie, do an activity like art, music, or yoga, bring in a guest speaker, host a virtual talent show or have an online pizza party! Some events will be for teens, some for youth, and some for "all ages" but we'll ALWAYS give away cool resources, prizes, and gifts!

New Plan For Elementary Orchestra Lessons

You Can Now Choose A Lesson Time Using A Shared Google Doc

This Shared Google Doc is where students and families will type in the lesson time they want. The goal is to have a lesson at least once every 2 weeks. Students are encouraged to sign up in small groups up to 3 with friends OR have your own lesson. The link will always be posted in the Schoology Course and on the Capitol Hill website.

Yes, there will still be activities and assignments in Schoology to complete, that are both valuable and fun, but our main focus will be on small group lessons.

Thank you to everyone who has been trying their best to practice and make progress. I miss seeing you in person very much and sincerely hope this will be a better way to support your musical learning.
