• MANAGING STRESS

    3/18/20  Hello Soaring Eagles!  I hope your distance learning routine has gotten off to a wonderful start!  I loved seeing all the pictures of your activities throughout the day.  I talked to many of your teachers and they are incredibly proud of all of the hard work you are putting into your learning.   What type of learning space did you set up for yourself?  

    The unexpected change in our routine and the need to have Distance Learning may have caused some stress for you or members of your family.  This is a normal reaction to a difficult situation.  Sometimes learning more about our feelings and making a plan for how to manage those feelings can make a big difference.
