We hope you and your families are staying healthy and happy during these difficult times amid the COVID-19 situation. For many of us, the uncertainty of our "new normal" may be stirring emotions, from feelings of unease to anxieties or even fear. As we look ahead, team members around DPS are rallying together to support each other, and offering resources to help choose how we respond, even when circumstances feel out of our control.
The Culture, Equity and Leadership Team (CELT) is offering a wide variety of strategies aimed to support team members in staying healthy and strong, both physically and emotionally. To put this into action, they’ve developed a series of self-care videos that will be shared throughout the rest of the school year.
These videos -- focusing on things like slowing down, accepting change and managing thoughts -- are grounded in our Shared Core Values and offer resources and ideas to promote optimism as we navigate these changing times together.
See the first three videos of the series below, and be sure to check out Team DPS Weekly every Thursday for more each week. The CELT team is also sharing these videos directly three times a week with anyone who has participated in a values-based program in the past.
