Wellness @AAS

Greetings from the counselors.

This is a school year like no other! Over the past year, we have all had to learn how to live with uncertainty. The one thing that IS certain is that this has been, and continues to be, a turbulent and even confusing time for all, with so many different messages coming from media, governments, social networks, and even friends and acquaintances.

As your family navigates the current learning pathway whether it be Distance, Hybrid or Modified On-Campus Learning, you continue to face a time of great opportunity as well as challenge, balancing the demands of online and in-person classes with other activities to keep you all sane and healthy.

Counselors update the Wellness page as we find new resources about things that you can do at home to manage the pressures of work and school, and maintain your and your family members' mental health. Take a look at the sections below for ideas.

Remember that the counselors are here to support AAS Families, not just students. Please reach out if you have any concerns or questions. Email your respective counselor at firstname.lastname@aas.ru.

As we begin the transition to Modified On-Campus Learning, here are some tips from our School Psychologist, Joseph Graybill, for talking to your child about the return to school.
