Welcome to Rattlesnake Health Enhancement! My name is Mrs. Lewis and this is my second year teaching HPE here at Rattlesnake. For more info on me, please visit the 'Meet Mrs. Lewis' tab.
I will be posting periodic HPE Newsletters here on my webpage that will give you a window into our day to day and a description of the units of study we are currently focusing on. The update will also be sent out via Blackboard. I have posted a link to a Monthly Activity Calendar from SHAPE, our national organization for HPE, to encourage daily movement with your families. There is also a link to the Missoula Moves Activity Calendar for free and low-cost local movement opportunities. Keep checking back for more additions!
This summer I had the privilege of taking a graduate course with Dr. John Sommers-Flanagan of the University of Montana called Happiness for Educators. I look forward to introducing students to what I have coined our Happy Habits. These Happy Habits will be tips and strategies to improve our wellbeing, such as deep breathing, savoring, gratitude, growth mindset, goal setting, forest bathing, asking students 'What's Good About You?', H.A.L.T.E. and a kindness campaign titled Other People Matter. I have created a tab, Happy Habits, where you can access those resources.
Here's to another year of bettering our mind and body!
