Wellness Wednesday

Wednesdays in virtual school is a time devoted to tending to the social and emotional needs of all students. This could look different for everyone. Each week, we will provide a variety of opportunities and in the weeks to come, some of those will include live sessions with our student support team.

  • Each week we will host two separate live sessions with a member of our student support team leading synchronous learning on a selected topic. K-2 will be from 9-9:45AM and grades 3-5 from 10:30-11:15AM. Classroom teachers will share the Zoom links with you.
    • January 27: This week's Wellness Wednesday topic is this month's Character Trait: "Responsibility"!!! Many times when people are asked, "What does Responsibility mean?"  The usual answer is, "It means being responsible."  Well, yes, that IS true.  But then you must ask, "What does being responsible mean?"  Responsibility and Being Responsible mean doing the things you are supposed to do. Making good choices, completing your work, being honest, and admitting when you have made a wrong choice are just a few of the MANY examples of Responsibility!!!  When you are Being Responsible, people can trust you and count on you to do what you say you're going to do!!! :) So join us on Wednesday, January 27th, to learn these things and more about your "Responsibility" Superpower!!!
  • Additionally, our Well Team has created a tic-tac-toe choice board of social-emotional learning activities your child can choose from.
  • Finally, each week, Durham Public Schools will provide a selection of activities to support a given theme. These activities vary and are available for all grade levels (K-12), so choose the ones you think best fit for your family!

We hope you have a great day of learning!
