CUB-Catch Up & Breathe Weekends

Catch Up and Breathe - CUB Weekends

 

Rationale:

During the 2016-17 school year, "Catch Up and Breathe (CUB)" Weekends were developed in response to concerns about student stress. CUB Weekends were conceived to be about mentoring students about how to take healthy pauses in life. We all need time to reconnect, recharge, and regroup, and these weekends were designed to be chances to do exactly that. It was our attempt to honor the fullness of our students’ lives outside of school, and at the same time they afforded us a chance to mentor students in striking a balance between work and play.  "Catch Up and Breathe" was also a recognition that weekends were different than other days of the week.   On CUB weekends students did not receive homework due Monday, nor were there assessments/projects due on the Monday following a CUB weekend. Students were free to think about doing any or all or none of the following if they so choose:

- sleep in really late

- restock a pencil pouch

- go on a hike

- work on an art project

- charge up a Chromebook

- watch a movie with family

- curl up with a good book

- complete any overdue assignments if they choose

- clean up/update their Google Keep or planner

- play a board/card/video game with friends

- run wild in a field

- organize a binder

- do anything that they feel would allow them to come back Monday feeling ready and refreshed...you get the idea… :)
