NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY STUDENTS LAUNCH SERVICE PROJECT
The service component for National Honor Society members has taken on a new look this year. Under the guidance of student officers, Emma Simone (president), Alex Treon (vice president), and Myrka Cruz (secretary) and moderator, Molly Maloof, members have developed virtual services opportunities. This week, members began the first phase of a virtual reading project by recording stories to be used for Guest Reader Day of the annual St. Matthew Right to Read Week. This initiative will continue as members record stories for some of our feeder school media specialists to use on their websites. Other plans include activities with long term elder care facilities.
NEW RESOURCE FROM THE STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES TEAM
Wellness Assessments
Dr. Sharon Murphy, Bishop Hartley Clinical Psychologiust, is sharing a resource for parents and students. The Teen Wellness Assessment is a tool that allows your teen to better evaluate their self-care needs. The goal is for students to identify and reflect on ways they might improve their overall wellbeing. It is a user-friendly and fillable PDF that automatically calculates scores. Please encourage your teens to take a few moments for this self-care activity.

There is also a Parent Wellness Assessment tool if you are interested in doing this activity along with your teen(s); it can be a great way to start conversations about implementing / supporting change and healthy behaviors across several domains (work/school, relationships, physical, emotional, etc.).
