    We are all different fish, but we swim TOGETHER 

  • During remote learning, Kisthardt students were asked how they can prepare to have mindful days. Their responses included: 

    • Telling yourself motivational things
    • Meditation
    • Healthy eating
    • Focusing on slow, deep breaths
    • Exercise
    • Leaving yourself enough time to do what you need to do



    Kisthardt students were also asked to name examples of  their own positive self-talk. Comets said:

    • Keep trying even though you might fail

    • Working hard is the most important thing

    • I can do this

    • I will get better

    • I am awesome



    Quick quiz: Is EMPATHY more like:

    A. Putting yourself in someone else's shoes (trying to understand how someone else feels) or

    B. Feeling sorry for someone

    Scroll down for the answer 
















    Answer: A.  Empathy is like putting yourself in someone else's shoes (trying to understand how they feel).

    Remember, this is more helpful than just feeling sorry for someone because it gives you ideas about how to respond or help the person.
