June 2 - Finding Balance
This week, Ms Bellegarde reviews a resiliency teaching about Eagle feathers. She also goes over smudging and the medicines used to smudge with as a way to bring balance and to ground one’s self when one feels out of balance. This is especially relevant this week with the announcement of the 215 children found at the Kamloops Indian Residential School.

May 19 - Nature Walk
Need a little inspiration? The next time you take a walk outside, note things that spark a sense of wonder or awe. A study showed that "Awe" walks inspire more joy and less distress. Imagine you're seeing things for the first time. What will inspire you?
Afternoon teachers are asked to take their classes for a quick walk into nature. Teachers will exit the school through the bus doors, walking your classes across the gravel parking lot towards the Kinsmen Arena. Once on the pavement, turn left towards the gate leading to Jaycee Beach. From the gate, just follow the flags. The Flagged route takes approx 15 min. If teachers would like to make their walk a little longer, they can head towards "Wiggley Field" the off leash dog park.

Mr Nesseth shares how music can be that little "lift" that gives you the energy to get through the day.
May 5 - A School that Cares

We’re hoping to give our students a little “pick me up” as we head into our last, and probably most challenging Penta. (Teachers, please distribute the "pumpkin" notes in your mailboxes to your afternoon class.)
