Culminating activities and exams can be a stressful time, but don’t worry, we’ve got your back! Thanks to the hard work of Karin, our CYW Silvia, and our amazing student volunteers, we distributed “Zen bags” containing everything you need to get you through the next few days: stress balls, a notebook, a USB so you don’t lose those important assignments, a bag of tea, and stress management tips and apps. If you didn’t get yours, please see Karin to receive it!

SOLE students and staff ended the year with Take It Easy Thursday. We had a feast of pizza and festive treats, watched The Nightmare Before Christmas, and did our nails. A few of us even took chill to the next level and wore our PJs!
We wish everyone a safe, happy, and relaxing holiday break! See you back on January 7, 2019!
