How can we start this new year happier? Things have certainly not been easy over the last year, and we are still in difficult and uncertain times. The best way to try to handle our difficult emotions and experiences is by focusing on what we can control. This month, we're encouraging everyone to focus on small steps to try to boost happiness - for ourselves and others around us - to spread kindness and hopefully inspire others to do the same.
GENTLE GOALS FOR A NEW YEAR (by Nanea Hoffman)
Give more hugs.
Seek the good in others and yourself.
Make something beautiful.
Read for pleasure.
Tell yourself the truth, always.
Listen more, argue less.
Practice gratitude every day.
Drink more water.
Be delighted by the ordinary.
Remember the humanity of those who disagree with you.
Try new things.
Value yourself. Enforce boundaries.
Spend time outdoors. Breathe deep.
Fall in love with the person you are now.
Most of all, be kind
Because that’s who you are.
TAKE TIME TO LISTEN (from Parenting Teens and Tweens)
If your teen starts opening up to you….
Stop cutting the vegetables,
Look up for your computer,
Turn off the vacuum,
Put down the book,
Shut off the television,
Put down your phone,
Pause whatever you are doing,
Because you never know when this moment will happen again.
WINTER WEATHER PREP
As the temperatures continue getting colder, it’s time to start preparing for winter weather and the snow bus routes, school delays, or closures that can come along with it.
When inclement weather strikes, the district will make decisions about school as early as possible -- sometimes even the night before, but our goal is by no later than about 5:30 a.m. on the day of the weather event. The message will go out via FlashAlert and will then be reported on most news websites and TV stations.
To make sure you’re set to receive the information, again, please subscribe to Canby School District on FlashAlert. Now is also a good time to update your text preferences online by listing your phone number. For more information, please see our inclement weather page.
