Welcome Mesa Middle School students and families!
More than ever, it is important for students to stay busy and keep their minds occupied. I’ve created a fun list of activities to keep students engaged during Spring Break.
Monday - BE THE D.J.
Music can play a significant role in people’s lives. Make a soundtrack of songs that are important to you. Create a theme for each day, such as stress-reducing songs or music to dance to, and share with your family and/or friends.
See how your interests match different careers! Answer questions about yourself and explore careers that match your interests. Take it a step further and find college majors that match your career interests. You can even explore colleges that offer those majors. Check out the links below.
Wednesday - TAKE A TRIP
Visit a famous museum or National Park (virtually, of course). 
Thursday - SELF-CARE
There is no better time than now to make yourself #1. 
Explore your ideal vacation spots for the future. Plan your dream vacation. Do this on your own or with a friend or family member. 
During this time I want to make sure you know that we are still here to support you. Please email me if you would like to connect through email or a Google Hangout. You can reach me at: .

Online Learning requires time management. Here are some tips from Northeastern University:
1. Plan Ahead - use a calendar and reminders
2. Don't Multi-task - focus on one assignment at a time
3. Set up your Work Space - make sure you have all the required materials and set up as much as you can ahead of time
4. Block out Distractions - find a quiet space and consider using timers
5. Reward Yourself
6. Get a Good Night's Sleep
