Lunch with Mr. Martin and Mr. Schultz


One of the new traditions that I had planned to start this year was “Lunch with Schultz and Martin”. The concept was like an exit interview with seniors. I had planned to invite 10-15 seniors to lunch during the second semester to talk about their experience at CMHS. I would like to move forward with this idea. Over the next few weeks I will be inviting groups of 10-15 seniors to a virtual lunch with Mr. Martin and me.


Each week we will invite a different group of students to a virtual meeting. We will send you a Zoom invite with the menu of the restaurant we have chosen in advance for that week. When you accept/email back, you should include your lunch order. On the day of the meeting, we will order your lunch and have it delivered prior to the meeting.


We look forward to this opportunity to connect and talk about your experience as students at CMHS.


Thank you, Mr. Martin and Mr. Schultz

She will spend the next few weeks cancelling the 30+ reservations made for the National Parks. It's okay, it gives her another year to plan

    Mr. Rota has been hard at work 3D-printing and assembling over 100 face shields and delivering them to local first responders. Each headpiece takes over an hour and a half to print. He was able to secure a donation to purchase clear report covers to make the shield portion of each mask. Way to go Mr. Rota!

    10 TIPS TO SURVIVE SOCIAL DISTANCING

    1. Establish a Routine – Set regular times for schoolwork, sleep, meals, etc. Routines establish healthy habits, boost our focus & self-discipline, and help us feel more in control.


    2. Exercise - Regular exercise relieves stress, improves mood, and promotes overall better health.


    3. Get Outdoors So the weather isn’t great, but get outside even if for only a short time each day. Fresh air helps clear the mind, clear the lungs, and can strengthen the immune system.


    4. Set a Small Goal Each Day - Focus on what you can do today. Achieving small goals helps build confidence, gain momentum, and increases motivation for what comes next.


    5. Socialize (from a distance) - Reaching out to friends and family regularly on the phone and online will help prevent feelings of loneliness and isolation - for you and those you reach out to.


    6. Find a New Hobby (or Revive an Old One) - Now is your chance to try some new recipes, create or build something, start that scrapbook, practice or learn a new instrument, tackle that 1000 piece

    .puzzle, etc. Spending time on an activity you enjoy clears your mind, lowers stress, and improves overall mental health.


    7. Enjoy Time with Your Family - Have family dinners, watch movies and play games together, use this forced slowdown as an opportunity to reconnect.


    For Parents:

    8. Take a Break from the News - especially when the kids are watching. Get current information from reliable sources and help interpret this information for your kids, at age-appropriate levels.


    9. Be Flexible - Rules and guidelines that were in place before, such as restrictions on screen time, may need to be changed. Talk to your kids and work together to establish rules that work during this increased time at home.


    10. Take Time for Yourself - Kids will struggle if they see their adults struggle; they feel our stress. Use the above suggestions to find a healthy outlet to relieve your own stress or anxiety. Before trying to help everyone else, please take time to be kind to yourself.
