       FROM THE COUNSELING OFFICE
 
A mindful moment from the Counseling Center: 

Feeling stressed?  Do things that make you happy.

Find activities or hobbies that make you happy and incorporate them into your daily life.
This might be a physical sport, an artistic outlet or spending time with family and friends (safely, of course).


 
**REMINDER** Our school counselors are available while you are home! If you have questions, need help with something, or are having a tough time, please connect with us!! To make it easier, please feel free to email your counselor that you want to meet during your lunch period, or if there is another time that works better, that is fine too! Please find our email addresses and zoom links below (just send a quick email asking for a time that works for you!)
