Counseling Corner - GratiTuesday

What is gratitude and why is it important?

Gratitude is a feeling of appreciation. You recognize that something is valuable to you which has nothing to do with its monetary worth. It’s looking for the good in our lives.

Being grateful for what we have or certain people in our lives can help make us happier and change our brains, although it might take some practice. Good thing we have some time on our hands ;-) But you don’t have to take my word for it.

1.Let UC Berkely discuss their findings...

2. Need some ideas on things to be grateful for in tough times? Check out this list:

We are hoping to gather notes of thanks and gratitude for all the people in our community going above and beyond to help keep us all safe. We plan to share the pictures that are submitted to those members of the public who are working so hard during this challenging time. This includes medical personnel, emergency responders, school personnel, and anyone else that you can think of that is working to ensure our community stays healthy and productive. Post your photos and notes for all those that you are grateful to during these times at the link below. If you do not want your child's face to be in a photo, then you can simply take a photo of the note or drawing that they made to show their appreciation.

Reference Information

The Place of Forsyth County

Over the past two weeks, The Place of Forsyth has been working to support families during this difficult time in our community. This includes helping to distribute more than 1000 bags of food so that our kids and families have the essential items that they need. The Place continues to receive first time requests for assistance from families, including several who are in need of support due to the financial impact they are facing because of COVID-19. We expect the number of families in need of assistance to rise over the next couple of weeks. In order to support these families, The Place is working to distribute more food for families in the coming weeks, as well as creating meal kits that can be distributed biweekly.

Creating meal kits for families and giving financial assistance requires additional resources. We are confident this community will help us meet the needs of the most vulnerable during this time.

Eighth Grade Six Flags Trip

At this time, we are not sure if we will be able to take our 8th Graders to Six Flags as planned. The link to register for the trip through Mypaymentsplus is currently closed and will stay closed until we make a final decision about the trip. If we are able to visit Six Flags as planned, we will extend the registration deadline. If the trip is cancelled, we will refund any payments previously made. Thank you for your patience during this time.
