PPS Self-Care Activity December 2021
This school year our Pupil Personnel Support (PPS) team, consisting of School Social Workers, School Psychologists, and School Counselors, have created a peer led "Self-Care Calendar" to offer our staff opportunities for wellness activities each month. Our menu of options include hiking, painting, yoga, essential oil therapy, music therapy, journaling, and zoomba.
Our PPS staff are often responding to crises and supporting our students with the highest needs on a daily basis. Putting on our "Oxygen Mask" first before helping those around us allows us to be present and available to help those in need. During times such as these, it is more important than ever to prioritize their mental health so that our team can sustain the great work they do each day for our scholars and families.
This month's PPS Self Care Activity involved "Healing with Oils" at Come to your Scentses Succulent Diffuser Bar. They believe in "Planting Happiness" while promoting self-care, encouraging creativity, and they provided our PPS team with a lesson on the use of essential oils to heal, soothe, calm, etc.
