Morning SEL Update: May 15

Good Morning Families,

Good Morning Families,

Students, what is your “best self” for doing the thing you are doing right now? Adults, what are your “ideal selves” for managing all the things you are managing these days? Imagine a world where people used their best selves just half of the time. How would that change our need for self-care?

Good Morning Families,

Are you noticing good days and bad days? Are they in balance? Mr. Manzo is noticing these in his life, and no they are not always in balance. Maybe now is a good week to revisit some of the underlying strategies and skills for positive Self-care.
