Week of December 7, 2020
Please encourage your child(ren) to have their cameras on during classes. Having their cameras on while in their virtual classrooms will not only help the teachers ensure they are there in attendance and ready to learn, but will help students remain focused and understand the content more clearly. Turning cameras off will result in an unexcused absence for that class period. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding during this unprecedented time. Thank you!
Updated Attendance Procedures for MMS and FHS
While we are in FULL Remote Learning - if your child(ren) will not be able to log into their virtual classroom due to an appointment or not feeling well, please EMAIL Ms. Lockwood at jlockwood@fairview.k12.oh.us. You may still call and leave a message on the attendance line, however sending an email is the preferred method of communication during Full Remote Learning.  
In addition - please remind your child(ren) that they must sign in to their classes each and every period so that attendance can be taken. Failure to do so will result in being marked absent for that class period.

Thank you for your cooperation!

Mindful Mondays
Life is hard. Mindfulness can help.

Join Mrs. Cory for Mindful Mondays starting Monday, December 7 at 8:15 a.m.


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.

Email Mrs. Cory with questions or for more information!

Hello Fairview Park Families!

December is here and 2020 is coming to an end. With a whirlwind of a year, we want to make sure that teachers, staff and students all continue to consider good mental health and recognize positive coping strategies. The above image is an example of something that can be shared with students (or for yourself and your colleagues!).

Erika's Lighthouse has many materials that can be used virtually and for distance learning as communities continue to adjust to the many changes this year has brought. Along with our classroom programs, we have many resources for staff and Awareness Into Action Activities that can be used to engage students as we enter the winter months.
