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.

Happy New Year Fairview Park Families,

I hope that your holidays went well and we are all happy and healthy to start the New Year! I saw this statement in an article - The first rule of 2021 is we don’t talk about 2020. Salud and onward!

Let's do that! So moving forward, a parent sent me these two links below (PLEASE send me information you see to share with other parents!) that I think may be helpful to some:
 
Grandfamilies Resource Hub
The Ohio Statewide Family Engagement Center has launched a new Grandfamilies resource hub. Relatives who provide care for minor children are referred to as kinship caregivers, and grandfamilies are one of the forms of kinship caregiving. The GrandUnderstandings project provides resources to assist grandfamilies and educators. One of the resources, School Family Engagement with Grandfamilies in Mind, provides research-based strategies for educators engaging grandfamilies.
 
Save the Date: 2021 Virtual Parent Camps
The ParentCamp experience is defined as the hybrid “unconference” for parents by parents to come together and discuss what is best for kids. Bring your family, school, and community together to discuss different topics selected by parents on Wednesday, Jan. 13 and Wednesday, Jan. 27 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT for the virtual ParentCamp experience. Free registration, future dates, and resources are available on the ParentCamp webpage.
 
Salud and onward my awesome Fairview Park Families!
