Upcoming:  Teams and Canvas logins expected to be completed this week for all students.  This will allow all students to attend classes from home due to illness, stream into other grades at school, receive support services, or attend remotely in case of a shutdown.  This coming week we expect to complete an upgrade of our bandwidth and acquire new microphones that have been on back order.

Review:  A peek into Quiet Time:  I am currently streaming Quiet Time from my office, while Mr. Amal does it outside with the Middle School.  For 30 minutes the students see and hear me on their classroom smartboard.  For 30 minutes we do warm ups, yoga postures, massage, songs, silent meditation, and philosophy.  Today for example, the song we sang was very rhythmic, a calypso beat with the lyrics “Be kind and have a peaceful mind, be kind and have a peaceful mind, if you can do it you will find, Happiness won’t leave you behind.”  During the philosophy piece, I gave them 3 suggestions about how to develop a peaceful mind along with the benefits of that.  The suggestions were:

  1. Don’t worry so much!  The force that guides the stars and planets is guiding you too!
  2. See the good in everything and everyone
  3. Practice thinking of things you are grateful for each day so you can find contentment
