COVID-19 has genuinely truly changed the education industry and how our students have been learning since mid-March. The Winston School, fortunately, responded reacted quickly to the pandemic and we were well prepared to launch our distance learning model.
Our students have been working diligently hard online and are staying positive throughout this pandemic. We are coming together as a community and remaining connected. Here are some helpful friendly tips on how your student can excel during these unprecedented times.
As a student, or anyone working from home, taking time for yourself is extremely important. Keep work hours like you usually normally would at school or the office, and schedule a time for you. Whether that’s reading, going on a walk outside in the sunshine, playing cards with your family, or watching your favorite TV show, this will help you keep some normalcy in your routine.
Keep a Routine
A routine will help set your brain for the week and keep normalcy in your life. This includes going to bed at the same time every night, waking up at the same time every day, quiet hours at night time, setting time aside every day for a fun activity, and staying active.
Limit Social Media
Social media can help keep us connected and together during this time. Too much time on the internet though will cause you to make you tired and not motivated. Students and workers are online all day, and you need time to rest your mind. Spend time with your family playing games, find a new hobby, or focus on a good book.
Take this time to reach out to friends and family who may have trouble coping with COVID-19. A simple text, facetime, or phone call can brighten anyone’s day!
Pick up your pencil and learn how to draw, discover your new passion, renew friendships, and watch your favorite movies. This is a time where you can reinvent your interests and see what you are capable of!
We are in this together.
