May and June

We are headed to the finish line....

We are getting to that time of the year where most are counting down the days until summer! So as some of us are rushing around checking things off to get to the end of the year, try to stop and take a moment to remember the MEANING and your WHY. The answers vary for each of us but they all involve being connected to something bigger than ourselves. Let's get to that finish line remembering the aspects of your life that give you a sense of purpose!

Meaningful May

Being a part of something bigger than ourselves and focusing on things that we value is key to our wellbeing. So let's take time to reflect on what we care about this month and keep these things at the front of our minds as our societies begin to open up again.

But wait....

Sometimes the "finish line" can bring anxiety and the need to control. Here are some articles to help if this describes you.

PURPOSEFULL PEOPLE - Responsibility

Every month the Pupil Service Team will attach a letter with what is happening in our Social Emotional World here at school and Resources that may be helpful. Please reach out to any one of us on the Pupil Service team if you are in need of any additional Resources.

Below you will find links to K-2 and 3-5 parent letters with additional information and activities related to Responsibility that you can try at home.

Character Strong for 6th -8th grade

Our older students at MMS are also learning about character. Once a week during advisory, homerooms engage in a character lesson that focuses on the 8 Essentials (Patience, Kindness, Humility, Respect, Selflessness, Honesty, Commitment) and important social-emotional skills (Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, Responsible Decision-Making, Relationship Skills). To keep focusing on their character throughout the week, students are challenged to complete a "Character Dare" that relates to their weekly lesson.

Character Strong for 9th and 10th Grade

During Cardinal Time on Wednesdays, 9th and 10th grade students have been working on Academic and Career Planning, along with relationship building with their Character Strong group. During second semester, they will continue digging deeper into the Character Strong curriculum, which will focus on emotional intelligence, goal setting, and communication.
