Social/Emotional Student Support

At Beaver Lake Middle School we believe in supporting not just the academic needs of our students, but also their social and emotional needs. The Issaquah School District (ISD) has invested in Positive Behavior and Social Emotional Support (PBSES) programs, staffing and curriculum to allow us to do this. For more information please visit the ISD PBSES website.

Virtual Learning Tips

 

Self-Care is always important, but during this time it is vital for parents & students alike. This idea was shared with me & is a fun way to think about Self Care:

Find Time each week to…

Play – do something you enjoy just for the fun of it (that doesn’t involve screens!)

Rest - take time to relax and recharge

AND

Socialize - connecting with friends & family is important for all of us! (even virtually)

Here is a link to more details!

 

Setting Up for Success While At Home Together:

  • Stick to a consistent routine daily. Set expectations about getting up, getting dressed, and eating breakfast.
  • Create a schedule for each day with your children to break up the time. Include time for learning, playing, physical exercise, and emotional and mental health activities. All family members can be soothed by a predictable schedule, though there’s no need for a rigid agenda.
  • Put a limit on social media. Encourage staying connected to friends, but not obsessively reading news or discussing the virus online.
