As you may be aware, staff and students at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Elementary School are celebrating Mental Wellness Week along with our Catholic Education Week. Each day this week we have focused on a different aspect of mental wellness including affirmations, gratitude, self-care and mindfulness. Activities this week include Christian Meditation, yoga, healthy snacks, extra exercise, and mindful eating. Our school has added a number of resources to our Learning Commons to support staff and students. Additional resources have also been added to our Parent Resource Library and this updated list will be posted soon. On Friday, students and staff are invited to wear GREEN shirts as a visual support of this initiative. Please take some time this week to ask your child about what they are learning about maintaining and supporting mental wellness!
