  • Being interested in lots of things and wanting to understand more, even if it is challenging.
  • Seek out information and experiences.
  • Generate and ask questions to deepen understanding.
  • Work outside my comfort zone without letting stress limit my effort or performance.
  • Push myself to understand and try on other perspectives that are different from mine.
  • Develop interests and cultivate them inside and outside of school.

Mindful Mondays

Life is hard. Mindfulness can help.
 
What?
Mindfulness refers to a set of practices, certain habits of mind - as well as a general way of being in life.
 
Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, non-judgmentally. It’s about knowing what is on your mind.
 
Another way to say it - mindfulness is paying attention to your life here and now with kindness and curiosity.

When + How?
Mindfulness can be done during sitting meditation, movement activities such as running, walking or yoga and even while eating, doing school work or during other typical daily moments.
Beginning on December 7th, join Mrs. Cory each Monday morning at 8:15 am to learn how to use mindfulness as a way to help with the challenges present in your daily life. Meet details below!
 
Why?
Mindfulness practices in schools have been shown to improve students’ emotional well-being, academic performance and relationships.

Hello Fairview Park Families!

I hope you have seen some of my other newsletters about taking care of YOU (the adults) and I hope you have been taking care of yourself!

For the month of February - let's have some FUN! This month is going to be Random Acts of Kindness month - nothing for the parents to do except encourage your child to pick 1 per week or every couple of days. Here are some easy ideas at your fingertips:


Random Acts of Kindness ideas (nicely categorized:)

A twist with the Kindness - this also includes being kind on social media. Please talk with your child about appropriate ways to interact on media - Teaching Kids to be Smart About Social Media. PLEASE look for more details coming about my Parent University on phone addiction. It is a real issue! I will have an expert on our Zoom talk with us about Phone Addiction and how we can help our children.

Keep Warrior Strong and Safe!
