Circles & other Mental Health efforts


We're piloting mental health activities throughout the school AND throughout our MSA theatre arts program.


Ask your students about the addition of community circles in class. The purpose of circles is to improve relationships and the practice is such a hit this year that we are committing to offering circles at least monthly next year. Ms. Cortez will train student facilitators to help facilitate.


Laura McPretl, Ula's mom, has also generously offered meditation classes to both students and staff. Her new studio just opened in Novato but she has also transformed our library to a wellness space as well.


Next week, the whole campus participates in "Hope is an Action" week. Ask your actor scholar about their acts of compassion and gratitude.


I'm grateful to all of you! Here's to a strong end of the year! - Michelle Cortez
