The last month of the school year is here, a school year that was dominated by the Covid-19 pandemic. Together, we made it through! We hope our monthly themes along with the resources we shared were helpful to you, and we always appreciate you reading our blog and chiming in on our social channels. As the summer is close and the school year comes to an end we thought Joyful Endings would be a great theme for this month. It's about finding joy in the moment, whether we're together in person or virtually, or even by ourselves. Joy can be found everywhere, anytime. We are excited to share great resources with you, and would love to hear what you're doing to find joy; connect with us on Facebook to share.

As the pandemic continues its grip on the world we have to remind ourselves that the days are long but the years are short (Gretchen Rubin). This will pass eventually, and while we're going through it, it's better to go through it together, with our important others. The power of personal relationships - with yourself and others - is such a big deal that we decided to make it our theme of the month for May. We are excited to share great resources with you, and would love to hear what you're doing to get and stay connected; connect with us on Facebook to share.

March is here and with it, the first signs of Spring, bringing longer days and the hope of warmer weather and more time spent outdoors. While we all continue to follow public health orders and stay home in order to see the end of the pandemic sooner than later, wellness is on everyone's mind and it's our theme this month. We are excited to share great resources with you, and would love to hear about what you're doing to stay well; connect with us on Facebook to share.

The new school year is here! As much as we enjoy summer, it’s always great to get back to a routine, and to learning. For the 2019/2020 school year, we thought it would be fun to introduce a theme, and we’re thrilled to share with you that the SCIDES 2019/2020 school theme will be learn & play. 

We’re inspired by the Play is the Way® movement and want to explore how we can challenge, support, and engage our students to embrace new ways of learning by incorporating play and stretching their comfort zones a bit.
