Did you know…Psychology Today recently published an article on journaling. The article states “Journaling is all about dumping that stuff floating around in your head and then being able to walk away from it. “  Here is the article on  8 different journaling techniques https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/here-there-and-everywhere/202001/discover-8-journaling-techniques-better-mental-health 


*The next Saxon Service is Wednesday, January 29th during Saxon Time.  Fifteen different activities will be available to students to support various service organizations.  Student can make sandwiches, write notes of thanks and support, iron, braid, knit, fold origami, sort crayons, make blankets and many other activities—there is something for every interest.

Why should students participate in Saxon Service?  Hands on activities and service to others reduces stress. Repetitive actions requiring little mental challenge can be meditative (Origami, coloring, ironing, braiding, knitting, sorting).  Service to others encourages thinking beyond yourself and caring for others. Saxon Service creates sense of community and fosters relationships outside “usual” friend groups. Students who engage in at least 40 hours of service during high school are eligible to earn a Service Cord to be worn at graduation--the Service Cord is the ONLY graduation cord available that is not dependent on grades, skills, or ability, but simply on a commitment to service.
