Friendly Reminders:

  • As a safety precaution, ALL students must sign in & out of the library, including those with an open period, running start schedule or travel period. Students must have a pass from class and show it to library staff. The sign in sheet is located on the counter by the main doors. If you need to take a quick break, please ask for a shiny, new hall pass from Mrs. Miller.

  • Do you eat lunch in the library?
    • Be considerate and do NOT knock on the south exit doors to enter the library. Enter through the main doors to keep disruptions at a minimum. Did you know we have…
      • students who regularly attend their running start classes online in the library?
      • staff members working in the office by the south exit doors?
      • testing, classes, events & meetings scheduled in the library?
    • Remember to do our part! Wipe down your space, throw away your trash, return your chair back to where you found it, and mask up when you’re done eating.
    • Students will be asked to leave if they are not following these expectations for the library

Mental Health Weekly Challenge:

Tuesday

Teachers – if you are willing, here’s a quick mindful breathing exercise you can lead your students in. Otherwise, here is a video option: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7PxEy5IyV4

Benefit: Activation of the parasympathetic nervous system dissolving stress and anxiety

Mindful breathing for one minute. Lower your eyes and notice where you feel your breath. That might be the air going in and out at your nostrils or the rise and fall of your chest or stomach. If you can’t feel anything, place your hand on your stomach and notice how your hand gently rises and falls with your breath. If you like, you can just lengthen the in breath and the out breath or just breathe naturally. Your body knows how to breathe. Focus on your breath. When your mind wanders, as it will do, just bring your attention back to your breath. You might like to say ‘thinking’ when you notice your thoughts and just gently shepherd your attention back to your breath. This can be done for longer than one minute. However, even for one minute it will allow you to pause and be in the moment. Or you might just like to breathe out stress on the out breath and breathe in peace on the in breath.

 

Wednesday

Teachers – if you are willing, here’s a quick mindful breathing exercise you can lead your students in. Otherwise, here is a video option: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NwK3NCGPgA

Benefit: Activates and strengthens the prefrontal cortex

One Minute Breathing Meditation

  • Begin by sitting in a comfortable position
  • Soften or close your eyes and direct your awareness to your breath
  • Breathing gently and naturally, simply follow the rhythm of your breath
  • As you breath in, feel your stomach and lungs expanding
  • As you breath out, letting go
  • Breathing in, feel your body getting fuller
  • Breathing out, letting go of any tension or stress
  • Breathing in, feeling alive and awake
  • Breathing out, feeling relaxed and calm
  • On your final breath, lengthening the breath and breathing in deeply
  • And slowly letting it go
