Gallatin High Update

Week of October 19-23, 2020

General Overview

After a truly lovely fall, winter has arrived. I hope you are all staying warm and healthy as we head into this chilly weekend. I came across this article recently and thought it had some helpful advice for combating pandemic fatigue and maintaining student mental health. Justen Lee, our GHS School Psychologist, also recommended this article from Edutopia. The second article is designed for teachers, but has some helpful tips that can be applied at home to help students build and maintain relationships during their time at home.
