The Howler January 2021

principal's message

Welcome back SRM Family! We are so happy to be starting another semester with you and your students! I hope that everyone had a restful and peaceful Winter Break. For me 2nd semester always flies by, so I try and take some time to reflect on what went well and what could have been done better. There is always room for improvements, but the teacher, students, and parents have done an amazing job tackling virtual learning. It is something that we never thought we would be doing, especially at a drop of a hat. THANK YOU to EVERYONE for ALL YOUR HARD WORK AND DEDICATION! As we move into another semester of learning remember that the wellbeing of All of us is extremely important. Take time for you, be attentive to the needs and emotions of our kids, and communicate. We have come so far with virtual learning. I can’t wait to see what the next few months bring.                              ~ Maria Cordero, Principal of SRM

Student Wellness team message: 

What is Mindfulness? Mindfulness is a practice that helps us to focus on the present, rather than the past or the future. Learning to be more present in the moment is a critical skill, especially in today’s fast-paced world and with the circumstances of living through the restrictions and stressors of a pandemic.

Practicing mindfulness can actually improve our ability to focus, strengthen our emotional control, increase positive feelings, and bring calm to our everyday lives. Learning to be mindful does not happen in one practice session.  The idea is that it is a “practice” because we improve over time.

Here is a “mindfulness” activity you can practice by yourself or with your child.

Mindfulness 5-4-3-2-1

Skills targeted: Mindfulness, Coping Skills, Self-Regulation

How to try it: Explain that kids will be practicing mindfulness, which is a skill that helps us stay calm and in control. Have kids look around their room to find 5 things they can see, 4 things they can touch, 3 things they can hear, 2things they can smell, and 1 thing they can taste. This is a grounding exercise that can help manage tough emotions and provide a mental reset when needed. After giving it a try, you can move to another room and try the same.

MESSAGE FROM THE SRM NURSE

Happy New Year Dear SRM Families!

Just a friendly reminder from the Health Office to stay committed to basic health techniques that can keep common viruses, the flu and covid-19 at a distance. Wash your hands for 20 seconds throughout the day with warm water and antibacterial soap and cover your cough and sneeze please by using your inner elbow to catch germs. Wear a mask whenever you leave your home and always practice social distancing by keeping 6 feet away from others. Remember... we can still be social while we are physically at a distance from others. Lots of virtual high fives to all of you! 

~ Melinda Prescott, RN SRM Nurse
