KPBSD Update: 4.1.20 Sources of Strength

What are your sources of strength?
Take care KPBSD. These are challenging times, and everyone is stretching this week. It is valuable to pause to check in with yourself, family members, and friends. Sources of Strength (SOS) program is in many KPBSD middle and high schools, and focuses on positive protective factors in our lives, such as trusted adults and mentors, healthy activities, and positive friends. These strengths aid students and everyone to develop help-seeking behaviors, coping mechanisms, and resilience that can assist overcoming difficulty and adversity in daily life, and increase health, happiness, and well-being. What are your sources of strength?
Idea: Think about which two are strongest for you today, then make time for a meaningful conversation about sources of strength with your family and friends. This can be a helpful way to check-in with each other.

Happy Census Day, Alaska!
Alaska Counts shares: “No, today is not the deadline for responding to the Census – that’s August 14. Technically, when you respond to the Census, you tell the Census Bureau where you live as of April 1, 2020, so that is why we celebrate it as Census Day. Which you can do right now at or by calling 1-844-330-2020. It’s safe, quick, and really important for the future of our state. We love you, Alaska. Wash your hands. Stay home. Respond to the Census. #alaskacounts #everyalaskancounts #census2020
