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.
    • April 14: This week's Wellness Wednesday ends our "Creekside Eagles Have G.R.I.T.!" series with a lesson called, "The 'T' in G.R.I.T. Stands For Tenacity!!!" :) I am thinking that many of you have heard of the word "Tenacity", but may not be quite sure of what it means. Well, "Tenacity" means to PERSEVERE and to KEEP GOING...even when things are really hard. It's not enough to only be good at something, but you also have to have the right mindset and strategies to overcome challenges! Tenacity is a Very important part of G.R.I.T. because when you are working to reach your goals and it becomes difficult sometimes, you must Always Persevere so that you don't give up! Want to learn more about having the Superpower called "Tenacity"? Then join us on Wednesday, April 14th, to talk more about what Tenacity means and the different skills you can use to keep your Tenacity strong!
  • 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!
