Month of mindfulness

We are prioritizing gratitude in the month of November.

As we are approaching Thanksgiving let's reflect on all the people that we are grateful for.

Research has found that expressing gratitude can strengthen relationships. So the next time your friend or family member does something you appreciate, be sure to let them know.

Bring a Mask (or 2) to school with you!

Please remember to bring a mask to school with you! You should also have an extra or 2 in your backpack. Masks will be handed out at school only in emergency situations from now on.
