Prioritizing You: May's Self-Care Adventure Awaits!

Hey there, awesome parents and students!

May has arrived, and with it comes an exciting journey into the world of Self-Care. This month, we're diving into the art of nurturing ourselves, finding joy in the little things, and embracing moments of relaxation. Whether you're a parent looking to set an example or a young student eager to explore self-love, join us on this adventure of well-being and discover the magic of self-care together. At Art Smith, some of our students find solace in singing as a form of self-care. Click the link below to listen to our students performing "I'm Good" by the Mowgli's.

Resource Roundup: Self-Care Extravaganza

Get ready for a self-care extravaganza with these fantastic resources for parents and students of all ages:

For more resources, check out the Self-Care page on the NLPS website.

We are excited to announce the upcoming Mental Health Week from May 6-12, dedicated to understanding, support, and kindness towards mental well-being. This year, our theme is a powerful call to action: "A Call to Be Kind."

In a world where being nice can make a big difference, let's come together to explore the amazing power of kindness in mental health. Our goal is to create a place where being caring makes a big impact, where judgment fades away, and where everyone feels valued and supported.

Art Smith will be hosting SFSK in some of our classes to deliver presentations on kindness and engage in activities with our students. Our student Community Helpers will be organizing various kindness events throughout the week during the lunch break.

Self-Care: Where Students Blossom

Students, it's time to embrace self-care:

  • Create a Relaxing Ritual: Set aside time each day to do something that relaxes you. It could be reading a book, taking a bubble bath, or listening to your favorite music. Make it a sacred ritual that helps you unwind and recharge.
  • Unplug from Screens: Take a break from the digital world and give yourself some screen-free time. Engage in activities that don't involve screens, like painting, writing, playing a musical instrument, or spending time in nature. Let your imagination run wild!
  • Physical Self-Care: Engage in activities that get your body moving and feeling great. Whether it's dancing to your favorite tunes, going for a bike ride, or practicing yoga, find activities that bring you joy and keep you physically healthy.
  • Mental Self-Care: Feed your brain with things that make you happy and challenged. Read a captivating book, solve puzzles, or engage in creative pursuits like drawing, painting, or writing. Give your mind the nourishment it needs!
  • Emotional Self-Care: Tune in to your emotions and find healthy ways to express them. Talk to a trusted friend, keep a journal, or engage in activities that bring you comfort, such as listening to music or cuddling with a pet.
  • Social Self-Care: Surround yourself with positive and supportive people. Spend time with friends who lift you up, join clubs or groups that align with your interests, and nurture those connections that bring you joy and laughter
