Principals Message

It’s February already! Where did the first half of the school year go? Even with all the challenges we have faced, this year is flying by. It is hard to believe that half of the school year is over. As I have worked with and talked to many people, the effects of the pandemic are wearing on many as it continues. Creating balance in our lives is an important part of wellness. Balance means making sure we have time to do the things that make us feel happy and fulfilled. This includes working, having fun, spending time with family, participating in the community, being physically active, praying, relaxing and sleeping. We often need to re-balance from time to time, to adjust to what is going on in our lives. When we’re trying to get through a tough time, balance is especially important. In these times, our habits and routines can help us get that feeling of control back. This means focusing on ourselves as well as the roles we play in the lives of others. Our roles and relationships with others help define who we are and give us a sense of purpose. Being engaged in life and relationships provides a measure of balance and overall wellness. This month as a staff we are focusing on wellness. Wellness is the act of practicing healthy habits on a daily basis to attain better physical and mental health outcomes, so that instead of just surviving, you’re thriving. February 1st we will start a wellness challenge that cultivates a healthy competition among employees while encouraging positive lifestyle behaviors. With our staff wellness challenge underway, we are focusing on the following and would like to invite all of our families to participate in this as well – drinking more water, eating veggies, eating fruit, lessen carb intake, exercise 30 minutes a day, lessen the amount of treats eaten, walking – increase the amount of steps you take each day, and extra points for not eating after 8 pm. Wellness matters because everything we do and every emotion we feel relates to our well-being. In turn, our well-being directly affects our actions and emotions. With so much today out of our control, let’s control the things we can!
