This year has been more stressful for our kids and teachers than years before, and most likely it will continue to be that way. We have managed to stay in school with a virtual option, however, students honestly do not know from day to day when they are going to be quarantined and have to shift to online learning. In order to make this year more enjoyable we have created a mentor Friday each week where each staff member is a mentor to a group of about 20 kids. We spend the entire day having fun, catching up on work, etc. This has helped us continue to build relationships with our in-person and our virtual students. Throughout all of this my mentor group & my students are persevering by still putting forth their best effort daily despite not knowing what changes will happen tomorrow. Even though some may seem to be thriving and resilient, anxiety and depression have been on the rise this year. Mindfulness practices can help people manage stress, cope better with illness and reduce anxiety and depression. I would like to provide a mindful space for my students and mentees to calm down when overwhelmed or stressed here at school; a place where they can take a break and get away from the computer screen. Since I'm the only counselor, a lot of times I am detained and not able to be with every student when they need me. This space would truly benefit all of our students, every day and especially on our mentor Fridays. Some items I'm including in this project such as the weighted blanket, the diffuser, the sound machine, the light machine, and the stress relief toys will be able to provide different sensory items for students as needed.
