WCSD PBIS: Resilience!

Volume Seven: Summer 2019

Cultivating our own resilience through self-care

In this edition of the newsletter...
  • Set a vision for a truly restorative Summer break
  • We've said goodbye to our students, now it's time to take care of ourselves
  • Find Your Marigolds - surround yourself with good people
  • Videos: What's Your Purpose? and Puppies!


The last few weeks of school can be so harried and busy. After we let out that deep exhale,

let's pause a moment to think about why we do this complex work...

then make a commitment to replenish & refuel our spirits

with some well deserved rest and fun!

Use your strengths in alignment with your sense of purpose
