S.E.L.F.I.E. Week at SaJHS


Last Thursday, students here at SaJHS had a special speaker come to our school to talk to them about mental health and the importance of stepping away from their phones and making real connections with people. He encouraged them to talk to people and interact with their peers more often. In support of that, our counseling office organized a campaign for this week called Take a SELFIE. 

The Take a SELFIE campaign encouraged kids to step away from their technology for a week and work on themselves and their interpersonal relationships. They have been engaged in activities this week in groups or playing interactive or collaborative games to encourage them to enjoy each other's company.

Students also have the opportunity to memorize positive, uplifting quotes to enter a drawing to win a prize.
