What's new with KHS Sources of Strength

TRUSTED ADULTS

This is a photo of this year's trusted adults campaign. Students have identified those in the school who they can rely on for help if they need it. 

WHAT ARE YOU THANKFUL FOR?

This display, located in the High school showcases what students have shared about what they are thankful for. Focusing on the good and sharing ideas of happiness/thankfulness helps to improve our mood and realize that there are good things in the world, we just have to step back, take time and recognize them. 

 

PAINT NIGHTS

This year we have continued to have "paint nights" at the high school, where we can socially distance and gather with others to enjoy a relaxing after school activity of painting on canvases. 

We look forward to more paint nights and after school activities! With the expansion of the program to the Junior High, we can collaborate and work with different populations of students. 

 

SOURCES OF STRENGTH DURING COVID-19 OUTBREAK:

We aren't able to connect with each other like we normally do, and this can make our time in quarantine especially hard. Sources of Strength has come up with several resources to combat the feelings of uncertainty with activities and ways to think about the different slices of the sources wheel. Some of these resources are being distributed to students in grades 6-12. Visit www.sourcesofstrength.org to learn more!

GARDEN OF TRUST:

Last November, our Sources of Strength team surveyed all 6-12 students at Kootenai and asked them to identify a "trusted adult" in their life, or someone who they can confide in. 

The picture below is the display that was created to showcase those trusted adults. Each sticky note has the name of an adult and is available for viewing as you walk through the building.

We wanted to identify those adults, so students can get ideas and share their thoughts about different people in their lives who are trustworthy or who could be a possible point of contact for someone in need. 

There is a display in the Junior High as well as in the High School.
