It is hard to believe that it is almost May! We have been keeping very busy with lots of exciting activities here at Green!
Our 7th and 8th grade students had the opportunity to participate in workshops facilitated by the Pass it Along organization. These workshops focused on community building, volunteering, and creating a school culture of kindness.
I continue to visit classes regularly to share lessons on a number of important topics! Grades K - 5 have been focusing on problem-solving, empathy, and friendship, while middle school students have been focusing on positive self-talk and self-esteem.
A number of students have also been meeting with me in small group settings. Recently, we have had groups focused on problem-solving, friendship-building, and easing worries.
Our 7th and 8th grade Peer to Peer group was excited to facilitate two outreaches for our 2nd and 4th grade students focused on respect and personal property!
I regularly update my webpage with a number of resources focused on mental health. Click here to view the resources page.
Please remember that I am here to support the students however I can. I am available to meet if a student needs help or just wants to talk! Don't hesitate to reach out if I can support you in any way.
Pass it Along Workshops
Our 8th grade students participated in the Discover Your Passion and Purpose workshop. This program is designed to "build self-esteem and self-acceptance and promotes compassion and altruism." With a focus on gratitude, students were encouraged to concentrate on the people and things that mean the most to them, and then to think of ways that they can give back in their community.
7th grade students were able to join Pass it Along for a two day program focused on community-building, self-discovery, and creating a school culture of kindness. The workshop included hands-on, movement-based learning activities and encouraged students to focus on the positive qualities of those around them.
We were very lucky to be able to welcome Pass it Along back in person this year!
Peer to Peer Outreach
In March and April, our 7th and 8th grade Peer to Peer students facilitated an outreach for our 2nd and 4th grade students focused on respect and personal property. The younger students had the chance to rotate through stations where they played games, performed skits, and made their way through an obstacle course. The 7th and 8th grade students planned and built the stations, and the younger students were fantastic participants.
