Collect for Kids Kicks Off!

Summer is here, and we're already thinking about how FCPS will "Return to Learn" in the fall. With nearly 60,000 students qualifying for free and reduced meals, we already know that many of our students will not have the school supplies they need to be successful in their learning journey, whether in-person or virtual.Your contribution to Collect for Kids can help us provide kits of supplies for these students which will be delivered to them in August before the start of school. Please help us make sure all students have what they need to be creative, and successful, in school.

Building Resilience to Handle Challenging Times

Life doesn’t come with a road map and if the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it's that things can change rapidly and at any time.

So how do we weather the storm when the road takes an unexpected, stressful, possibly life-changing turn? One factor that contributes to how well one adapts to handle challenges over time is resilience.

What is Resilience?

The American Psychological Association (APA) defines resilience as “the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress — such as family and relationship problems, serious health problems, or workplace and financial stressors. As much as resilience involves ‘bouncing back’ from these difficult experiences, it can also involve profound personal growth.”

Building Resilience

The good news is that one can develop resilience to handle challenges in life through the use of some simple strategies each day! Give these strategies a try; it may pay off for you and your family in big ways: 

  • Maintain a Daily Routine 
  • Reach Out to Others
  • Keep Things in Perspective and Maintain a Hopeful Outlook
  • Accept that Change is a Part of Living
