Ask a Student - Mental Health

As you all know, these last two years have been difficult for all of us, including all of our students. When the pandemic first hit, I made a #askastudent video on how students were doing during quarantine (which feels like a lifetime ago).

Word of Wisdom

Word of Wisdom (Self Esteem) - November 1, 2021.

Emotions Video

Here is the latest creation from my class, The Emotions Rap! We focused on emotions for this song because we've all been experiencing plenty of them lately and this song helps to process those emotions a bit. This song encourages kids (and adults) to not view feelings in a negative light, but to consider what it would be like if we only had a few emotions and how less colorful the world would be in that case. Emotions are actually very helpful and can guide us more than we think. 


Learning Recovery Plan

The Mount Vernon School District is continuing to develop plans to support students who may need additional learning and social opportunities. Your feedback will help inform our decision making process.  We would like hear from you. Please take a few moments to fill out a survey for each student in your household.  Click on the following link for the survey:
