Mental Health Tips

Aŋpétu Wašté Wakiŋyaŋ Čhetaŋ,
As we work together to educate and provide the necessary resources for our children, it is vitally important that we take care of ourselves. During this stressful time, we remind you all, to place an emphasis on your own self-care. Take time to breathe, meditate, exercise, get plenty of sleep, and take a break from the news and social media periodically.
These resources have been recommended by health experts and educators across the nation to provide support during these difficult times.  Social Emotional Learning resources are also provided to help support students’ well-being.
