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 9-10AM and 3-5 from noon-1PM. Classroom teachers will share the Zoom links with you.
    • September 30: This week's Wellness Wednesday topic is : "Growth Mindset and Redefining Failure". Join us Wednesday September 30th, to learn more about changing your thinking from " I can't" to "I just can't YET". Let us teach you how to grow with GRIT by, Giving your best effort, Redo is necessary, Ignore the urge to quit, and Take time to do it right. We will show you how anything is possible, mistakes are not bad and remind you that learning is not always easy but you should still try!!! :)
  • Additionally, our Well Team has created a tic-tac-toe 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!
