Stress and Our Mental Health Workshop 

Kicking off this school year, we would like to start by offering all classes a tailored engaging workshop specifically designed to address Stress and Our Mental Health. This is being offered in addition to traditional SADI Workshops we currently offer for grades 6,8, and 10. We want to acknowledge the pandemic has impacted our lives in so many different ways, bringing up feelings we may or may not have ever encountered before. So in this light we would like to take the time to offer hope and healing for all students recognizing, we are all experiencing this challenging journey together. This interactive workshop is approximately 60 – 75 minutes long.
