Free Journaling a Poem with Your Emotions

In the SEL & Leadership Pilot program, students journal every morning at the beginning of the session. Usually students are provided with a prompt to journal. From time to time, students will do free journaling. The free journaling is an exercise for students to fully release their thoughts and feelings, a way to express themselves.


One of our students wrote a beautiful poem during their free journaling time, fully captured her current emotions. It's such a beautiful poem and we would love to share it with you.

Building a Strengths Garden

We do not always remember to appreciate the special people in our lives. Last week, in our SEL & Leadership Club, we invited our students to think about one special person and pay attention to the strengths they share with or have positive impacts on them.

As a group, students build a strengths garden to show their appreciation to the special people and let them how amazing they are!
