Thank You 2019-2020 NIS Ambassadors

The NIS Ambassadors play a key role in welcoming new students to the NIS community.  A transition can be a difficult process in a person’s life, especially during a time where developmentally you are so social. Having a support network of peers available helps ease with the arrivals and the farewells.  Thank you, NIS Ambassadors, for your support, you are an asset to the community.  Please stay tuned for the 2020-2021 NIS Ambassadors.

Transition Time: Leavers and Stayers

Last week grade 12 reconnected after the Covid quarantine and today the grade 12 students prepared to transition and have healthy closure by building a RAFT:  Reconciliation, Affirmations, Farewells and Thinking Ahead.  Just as important to leave well, we have to stay well.  We are a mobile community with people in transition.  Take some time to build a RAFT if you are preparing for a move.  If you are staying, take some time to affirm your relationships, celebrate others and take care to build your day with people and activities that are meaningful to you.  Here are a couple of websites for leavers and stayers, whether you are a student or adult:

Podcast on Grief and Finding Meaning

Good morning all,

In honor of Tomb Sweeping holiday here is a podcast by Brene Brown hosting David Kessler, a grief therapist.

The first 20 minutes discusses the experiences of loss and grief and the second half of the segment has a focus on the pandemic and our collective experience of loss.  I thought of our NIS community quite a bit through this podcast.  I could think of so many stories, feelings and emotions that have been shared over these past several weeks.  Sending you my best.
