The Bob and Maxine Moore Wellness Program

The Bob and Maxine Moore Wellness Program prioritizes the health and wellness of Chinquapin students, faculty/staff, and families. One of the most beneficial aspects of Chinquapin is the nourishing environment that creates supportive, lasting relationships. By providing the community the space to grow, learn, and lead in an empathetic way, speaks volumes to the importance social-emotional, mental, and psychoeducational needs have on wellness. The Bob and Maxine Moore Wellness program will provide sustainable lifelong skills by offering programs that empower students and create compassionate, engaged, and productive community members.

Chinquapin continues to build and strengthen the mission by focusing on the health and wellness of our community. Instructors strategically and intentionally redesign lessons to be student-centered and content-driven. Social-emotional learning (SEL) was important before, but now it has been catapulted to the top of every educator’s priority list. Not only is Chinquapin zeroed in on continuing to provide the opportunity for academic success, we are supporting our community’s mental health as well. Daily check-ins with students, teaching about self-advocacy and allowing personal time and space for destressing, and weekly SEL tips to cope with the pandemic are vital to engaging instruction and enhancing relationships.

Instructors and students are dealing with overwhelming thoughts of “Is this working?” and “How will I be able to continue to strive at this pace?” While we are hesitant to continue moving forward when hope seems diminished, reassurance comes with the urgency to press onward in the midst of one of the most emotionally taxing times in our lives, so we’ve implemented a wellness program that highlights the importance of mental health. The Bob and Maxine Moore Wellness Program prioritizes the health and wellness of Chinquapin faculty/staff, students, and families. We’ve partnered with The Toolkit Project, PLLC and Baylor College of Medicine to provide full-scale counseling services and workshops for our community. Dr. Mia Johnson leads the newly-designed program and offers consultations, individual counseling sessions, assessments, parent conferences, referrals, resources, and faculty/staff professional development. Community meetings with Baylor College of Medicine have been added to provide safe spaces for students to articulate their experiences. Recent topics include: emotion regulation, bullying, anxiety in teens, and depression during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The community would not be able to adequately assess our needs without the Bob and Maxine Moore Wellness Program. All students are eligible to participate and are encouraged to take advantage of this spectacular opportunity. Please sign up by completing and returning the enclosed consent form.

Sincerely,

Dorothy Scrutchin, Ed.D.

El Programa de Bienestar Bob y Maxine Moore

 

El Programa de Bienestar Bob y Maxine Moore prioriza la salud y el bienestar de los estudiantes, profesores/personal y familias de Chinquapin. Uno de los aspectos más beneficiosos de Chinquapin es el entorno nutritivo que crea relaciones duraderas y de apoyo. Al proporcionar a la comunidad el espacio para crecer, aprender y liderar de manera empática, dice mucho sobre la importancia que las necesidades socio emocionales, mentales y psicoeducativas tienen en el bienestar.

Chinquapin continúa construyendo y fortaleciendo la misión al enfocarse en la salud y el bienestar de nuestra comunidad. Los instructores rediseñan las lecciones de manera estratégica e intencional para que estén centradas en el alumno y basadas en el contenido. El aprendizaje socioemocional (SEL) era importante antes, pero ahora ha sido catapultado a la cima de la lista de prioridades de todos los educadores. Chinquapin no solo se concentra en continuar brindando la oportunidad de éxito académico, sino que también apoyamos la salud mental de nuestra comunidad. Los controles diarios con los estudiantes, la enseñanza sobre la autodefensa y la asignación de tiempo y espacio personal para liberarse del estrés, y los consejos semanales de SEL para hacer frente a la pandemia son vitales para atraer la instrucción y mejorar las relaciones.

Los profesores y los estudiantes están lidiando con pensamientos abrumadores de “¿Está funcionando?” y “¿Cómo podré seguir esforzándome a este ritmo?” Si bien dudamos en seguir avanzando cuando la esperanza parece menguada, la tranquilidad viene con la urgencia de seguir adelante en medio de uno de los momentos más exigentes emocionalmente en nuestras vidas, por lo que hemos implementado un programa de bienestar que destaca la importancia de la salud mental. salud. El Programa de Bienestar Bob y Maxine Moore prioriza la salud y el bienestar de la facultad/personal, los estudiantes y las familias de Chinquapin. Nos hemos asociado con The Toolkit Project, PLLC y Baylor College of Medicine para brindar servicios de asesoramiento y talleres a gran escala para nuestra comunidad. La Dra. Mia Johnson dirige el programa recientemente diseñado y ofrece consultas, sesiones de consejería individual, evaluaciones, conferencias de padres, referencias, recursos y desarrollo profesional para profesores y personal. Se han agregado reuniones comunitarias con Baylor College of Medicine para proporcionar espacios seguros para que los estudiantes expresen sus experiencias. Los temas recientes incluyen: regulación de las emociones, intimidación, ansiedad en los adolescentes y depresión durante la pandemia de COVID-19.
