Wellness Wednesday: Be Dependable

Happy Wellness Wednesday Red Devils!

Because YELLOW stands for happiness, positivity, energy, optimism, and joy, we are asking for our campus community to wear YELLOW on Wednesdays to help promote our Wellness Wednesday efforts.

We all have the capacity to be dependable. To be dependable means being "reliable, steady, trustworthy."

Being a dependable person can improve the quality of your life. If you are dependable people know they can count on you to be on time, do your best at something, finish the job and even do what’s right when no one is watching. You have earned their trust, they know you are dependable.

You, as a student, can show you are dependable in many ways. You can have perfect school attendance, never miss turning in an assignment or fail to study for a test. Others are never late to a class or a practice and try their best at everything they do. They work hard to meet all their obligations. They dislike disappointing anyone, especially themselves.

Self-Care Tip: Notice what is working today and be thankful. 
Kindness Challenge: Offer a helping hand to someone who is facing difficulties. 

We all need someone to talk to, someone who listens, and someone who understands. Your Sweetwater High School Counselors are here for you. Click here to complete the SUHi Wellness Check-In. Your counselor will reach out to you 😀

Virtual Wellness Room

Please visit our Virtual Wellness Room to take a break from your daily routine. Do some breathing exercises, stretch, or play a game. It's OK to take a time out for a "brain break".

Counseling Center Updates

This semester, the counselors have visited all 9th grade World Geography and 12th grade economics/US Government classes to discuss graduation requirements and post-secondary planning. 

In the upcoming weeks, we will visit the 10th and 11th grade social science classes. 

All materials and information covered in these presentations are available in our Google Classrooms. Parents are encouraged to talk to their students about the information they received.

This is a reminder that we have college application workshops afterschool, Monday to Thursday, until November 30th for students who need assistance with their Common App, University of California (UC) and/or CSU (California State University) applications.

If students cannot come afterschool, they can make an appointment with their counselor via email.
The UC and CSU applications are due November 30th.

Workshops for students who need assistance with community college applications and FAFSA/CaDA financial aid applications will be held next semester.

Many of our past workshops are available on our YouTube Channel.

Thank you for your continued support,
