Check in with Mrs. Solis
Hello Ridgeview Friends! I have been thinking of you all and really miss talking with you! I hope that you are safe, happy and enjoying this time at home learning and connecting with your family. If you would like to check in, feel free to click on this link and send me a private note. I can even call you as long as the adult who cares for you says it's OK. You can also email me at where you can send me an email, attach a picture or even send a video. Stay in touch. I wish you well!
You are not alone!
While we are all away from each other and missing our friends, I want you to remember that you are not alone! Even though we are not able to spend time together right now, we can stay connected in our minds and in our hearts. The Invisible String is a story about two children who learn about "the invisible string". It is an imaginary string that you can't see or touch but it is there to remind us that we are connected to one another through LOVE and friendship.
Wishing you well!
Take a Deep Breathe. Relax. You got this!
All feelings are OK. Whether you are worried, angry, stressed, sad or frustrated, you can take care of your feelings, ride that emotional wave, and relax. Try one of these meditations. Find a quiet place, close your eyes if you feel like it, and listen. You are safe. You are loved.

How do you like to relax? Here are just a few ideas. How many can you come up with?
Draw or color. You could make a picture for someone you care about.
Go outside to walk or play.
Sit quietly and notice all the sounds around you.
Make some art. Use some of the objects around your house (like cardboard, straws, play-doh, crayons, and more) to create something interesting. Just have fun with it.
Play with your pet.
Think about 5 things you are grateful for.
Listen or dance to music.
Count on Me by Bruno Mars
Help your friends count on you, even when we have to stay home!
How does this song and video make you feel?
Count on me:
Draw pictures to post in your window. Friends who are out on a walk can look for them.
Draw a card for a friend.
Text or email a friend to let them know that you are thinking about them.
Ask an adult to help you, if needed.
