Wellness Month - Mindfulness Day Two

*video will not display in email - click here to view.

Please take a few moments this morning to do this mindfulness exercise. Maybe your whole day will be better because of it!

Wednesday Sense: Smell

  • You can smell about 10,000 odors
  • Your sense of smell is closely linked to your memory
  • Eighty percent of what we experience as taste is actually smell

Mindful Practice: Scent Memories

Your sense of smell can sharpen your focus, and scents help build and recall memories. Close your eyes and think of your favorite place and try to remember how it smells, fill in the sentence.

I like the smell of [place]. I like the smell at the beach.
I smell [one or more scents]. I smell sea salt.
It reminds me of [memory]. It reminds me of summer.


Jr. Band is rehearsing tomorrow, which really is Thursday.

Attention 8th Graders

Mr. Randall from BFA will be at SACS on Friday at 8:45 AM in the library. All 8th graders must attend this meeting which will last roughly half an hour. This is a correction from the letter that you and your parents received. 

Your BFA registration forms need to be turned into Mr. Gale as soon as possible. 

Open Doors

Have you handed in your Open Doors registration form? 

Thank you to Tess Bashaw for teaching the Monsters, Myths, & Heroes  class for Open Doors All students who took her class were able to express themselves artistically, verbally (through presentation) and demonstrated an understanding of the core concept taught through their KWL. Check out some pictures below. Colin W. was a volunteer for this class. He was a positive role model for  the students including his brother who was in the class! Colin has signed up to be a volunteer for our second session.


Practice this afternoon until 4:45. Remember to sign up for the bus if you need it!
