STRESS FREE DAY BEFORE EXAMS
We all know that exams can be a stressful time for students and our number one priority is to provide mental health support! #Everydukecounts is the theme of our district this year and the counseling department is actively working to provide support in various ways for each student. We will be having a “stress free event” on January 15th in which we will have therapy dogs, coloring books, games, play dough, cookies, hot chocolate and more for students to take a break from studying and join us in the DLZ during their Academic Assist periods.
CALMING CORNER Coastal Pet has graciously sponsored a space in the Guidance Department for students to unwind and regroup, we have named it the Calming Corner. This space is designed to escape from the stimulants of the school day and allow students who need a space to calm down to do so. This quiet environment has a water feature, sound machine, soft lighting, coloring books, fidget toys, and alternative seating.
FRESHMAN MENTAL HEALTH DAYOur second annual Freshman Mental Health Day will be held on February 22nd, 2019. The Freshman class will be split into groups and learn about positive coping skills, positive mental health and participate in team building activities. A more detailed schedule of the day will be sent out prior to the event.
