Take a look at Ms. Trierweiler’s Mindfulness classroom. If you click on her bitmoji, the mindfulness video of the day will pop up for morning mindfulness. If you click on the believe in yourself poster it has the afternoon affirmation video. They are very short videos. I hope you like it. You can click on other things too and links will pop up.

How many girls are planning on going back to YWLA in the fall? I would love to know what a typical school day would look like for those who return. I am hesitant to register for either with the little information we have.
When can students drop of / pick up their items from school?
Good morning GEMS and Administration, from Candace West. Welcome to our new norm. We will start each day same as if we were at the schoolhouse. Have a great day.
Congratulations, Amaya Blakeley!! We're so proud of you!!
Hi everyone! I am a seamstress here in Fort Worth and my daughters and I made some face masks to help out through the coronavirus. My hope is to donate them to the hospitals, or any other organization that really needs them. I have no idea who to contact at the hospitals or local organizations to let them know... Any suggestions? Please help.
hi my daughter is a 9th grader. Are there any online assignments from instructors that she should be checking for? So far my daughter has only heard from her biology teacher.
Last week was counselor appreciation week, but due to testing it wasn't a focus. Next week, it will be! Please pass along to GEMS that there will be an opportunity to write a note to their counselors during lunch time Monday, February 10th! Look for the table with paper and pens and share a kind word for your counselors!

Thanks for hosting an awesome Open House tonight! We enjoyed learning more about YWLA, the 3 learning tracks, and going on the awesome tour. We can't wait for our daughter to attend next year!! Fingers crossed!!
Great job Ms. Woodard’s Choir class! 💗
