Ms. Maxwell, the 6th grade counselor, taught an advisory lesson today in Ms. Timme's class about stress and stress relief. Here you can see our volunteer student (and birthday boy!) trying to balance all these new stresses (balloons). As all the new stresses added up, it became impossible to balance, and the balloons hit the floor. It's clear we needed some better techniques to manage all this stress! The solutions were then drawn from the 6th grade audience and gaps were filled in by Ms. Maxwell. It was a great lesson!
