    Stress Management and Wellness Skills

    If you would like to reconnect or learn new tips for stress management and wellness, please join us for the 2022-2023 school year. There are 19 virtual sessions scheduled for this school year, the first on Nov. 9. 

    The Community Resiliency Model® (CRM) is used to help individuals strengthen their resiliency through the promotion of living fully with compassion in the present moment while managing the activities of daily living. In these sessions participants will have the opportunity to experience and learn techniques that promote one's ability to read their physical reactions during stressful situations in order to bring the mind, body, and spirit into greater balance.

    Circle Connections

    Learn more about one of the tools of Restorative Practices used in our schools, the Circle Process. The Circle is an organized group discussion that allows everyone to share openly when they feel comfortable. This often leads to improved behavior, increased accountability, and strengthening relationships. The Circle is a facilitated dialogue process that is invitational, meaning that no one is required to participate.

    The Circle (El Círculo) es una discusión grupal guiada por un facilitador y que es parte del conjunto de herramientas de prácticas restaurativas, que permite a todos compartir abiertamente cuando se sienten cómodos. Este proceso a menudo conduce a un mejor comportamiento, un mayor compromiso propio y un fortalecimiento de las relaciones interpersonales. Próximamente, se ofrecerán múltiples sesiones informativas para que los padres aprendan más sobre este proceso, incluidas las sesiones que se ofrecen en español.
