TEACHERS: Please post this on your PS page for the last week of instruction.

This California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) is voluntary. The information provided will help guide district and school efforts to promote safety, enhance learning supports, improve student achievement, and reduce health risks that stand as barriers to learning.

This is an anonymous survey. It is designed so that no one can be identified from the data. Students do not have to respond to any questions that they feel could be used to identify them. Instruct them to simply skip any such questions.

The results are for the use of the district. CDE and WestEd will preserve data confidentiality and refer any data requests to the district.

This week's challenge!

Let me know if you'd like me to join your meetings to help with distance learning!

Messages from Megan

This week's library update is a bit different, and I’m going to get a little personal here.

Have you ever heard the phrase, “Stay in your own hula hoop”?

This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot right now. In some ways, our life is even more unknown today than it was months ago when we last saw each other. Then, we had stamina to focus on the unknown. We had faith that we were doing the right thing for everyone. I share this with you all today because maybe someone you love (or you yourself) are spinning with uncertainty. My kids are spinning a LOT. When they start worrying about what other people are doing, not doing, what the future holds, or any other unknown, I say “that’s not in your hula hoop”. If you envision a hula hoop around you, and something is happening outside that space, it isn’t yours to worry about.

So how do we make stress work for us during stressful times? We can make stress work for us once we realize that it's our mindset about stress that matters most.

It’s my job as the “Keeper of the Books” to tell our kids to read. To support them in their love of reading. But what I’m really doing is giving them tools to be independent, to seek the truth, to regulate their emotions by taking personal breaks. But our kids need to see us doing this too. Studies show that it only takes 6 minutes of reading to reduce our stress levels by two thirds, and it works better and faster than any other method, including listening to music, going on a walk, or sitting down with a cup of tea. Today I’m providing you with a list of my personal favorite books, books that are varied in content but have all affected me at some point in my life. My wish for all of you is that today, tomorrow, and next week you can sit in your hula hoop with a loved one and a good book, and remember that there are stories in everything, and reading keeps hope alive.
