  • Calm Down Center

    This year, more than ever, our students will need social emotional support from parents, teachers and other trusted adults in their lives.  Providing this support will help by validating their feelings and teach them new ways to regulate their emotions.  Developing "Calm Down Centers" at home and school is one way to give students the space and tools they need to practice ways to express the many feelings that they may be experiencing.

  • Common Mental Health Issues in School Age Children

    The ability to recognize when students are struggling with mental health concerns is important because these issues often develop during childhood or adolescence.
