Do you react or respond in stressful situations? This was one of the salient points from the documentary “Angst” that some staff members watched last week as part of a CIS sponsored screening. Our school community continues to work on providing students with tools to recognize and address the way they either react or respond to stressors in their lives. As adults, we are working on ways to teach and model for students healthy strategies to properly respond to stressors. This is an ongoing process, and involves an ability to self-regulate through greater self-awareness that we all continue to develop while providing our children with proper tools to maintain their mental health and well-being. In this week’s Wellness Wednesday we shared some more information related to this topic that we hope you will take a moment to review. In addition, we continue to welcome community input, and are putting out a Last Call for completion of the Mental Health and well-being survey by all UWCEA Community members. It is due 28 August 2020, and we’re truly grateful for the responses received thus far.
Moving to the university side, D2 students (and parents), have you scheduled a meeting with your University Counselor yet? There are so many options to explore, but also decisions that need to be made in order to set an appropriate plan to ensure you are prepared for the application season. Please make sure you set your appointment(s) and come prepared with questions following research that has been done via Maia Learning and a host of other sources that have been made available.
Parents are welcome to participate in upcoming virtual visits, and to encourage their students to share information about these events that can be found in the “University Visits” section of their Maia Learning account. D1 and D2 students currently have access, but soon M5, and then M4 students, will be provided access to their own accounts. Parents who would like to access their child’s account, can email to receive access and an introduction video.
Please review the list above of Upcoming Virtual Visits/Presentations, and stay tuned as this list continues to grow.
