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 grades 3-5 from 10:30-11:30AM. Classroom teachers will share the Zoom links with you.
    • November 18: This week's Wellness Wednesday topic is: "Self-Management"!!! You may be wondering, "What is self-management?" I is a pretty big word, but you will realize that you know more about it than you think!!! :) Join us on Wednesday, November 18th, to learn that "Self-Management" is the ability to control your thoughts, emotions, and behavior in ALL situations. It also means setting goals to help you stay on track towards your GREAT future!!! We are going to learn more about what self-management is, and why it is SO important to control your feelings and actions towards yourself and others in order to achieve your dreams!!! We will also be practicing writing goals so get your thinking caps ready!
  • 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!
