Every school at SA has its own psychologist, who works closely with scholars to help them thrive. Traci at SA Harlem 4, and Alexandra Franklin at SA Bronx 2 Middle School, are two such experts who make it their mission to provide dedicated support for our scholars. Here, they come together to discuss what healthy stress management looks like and offer suggestions for supporting scholars at home.
I love sharing the joy I found when I was a cheerleader, so when I came to SA Harlem 4, I asked my principal, Mr. Loskoch, if I could start a cheer squad for third and fourth grade girls — and I was so thrilled when he said yes!
For the art show, we invited school staff and families into our art studio to see the hundreds of art pieces that our first graders produced this year. In addition to painting their community portraits, our young artists created collages with geometric shapes, built their own dream playground using recycled materials like cardboard and straws, created monotype symmetrical prints, and made paintings of a special memory to tell a story.
