Counselor’s Corner - Aubrey Jordan
At the parent workshop last week, I shared some health & wellness tips for parents during this time, that are helpful not just for students but for adults as well. One important point that has come up in teacher observations and students surveys is about sleep & routine. A couple of measures can be taken to assist our students in maintaining energy and focus during the day through a healthy and relatively normal sleep schedule. Here are a few examples of this:

  • Allowing enough time to wake up prior to first class.
  • Finding a location such as a desk or table in a common living area to participate in class. 
  • Exercising or moving the body for at least 30 minutes a day.
  • Promoting a scheduled bedtime in which electronics/devices are turned off or stored in a location outside of the bedroom.

For a full list of those tips please refer to slides 7-8 on this slideshow, or for any other question, please email me at

Please take a moment to view the Middle School Service Learning website, and read the May edition of MS service learning newsletter.
