Counseling News: News from the T.C. Williams Counseling Department
Organization & Time Management Strategies For Students

May 12, 2020

Hello Titans!

Thank you to all of the students who completed the Counseling Department's “How Are You Doing? How Can We Help? Student Support Survey” last week.  Over 450 students responded!  Many students (68%) reported that they are maintaining a balance between their school work and emotional well-being. While this reassuring, we want everyone to know that it is normal to have good days and not-so-good days. 

There were a few areas in which survey respondents said they could use some support. Forty-five percent of the respondents said that they could use some help with time management. And almost 30% asked for support with organization. We hope the resources provided in this newsletter are easy to use and helpful. Give them a try and share these ideas with others!

Organization
Distance learning, virtual classrooms and office hours can be challenging to navigate. These things are new to most of us. Learning how to organize and manage one's time are skills that will help during this closure and in life beyond high school.  A 6-minute video titled, “How to Stay Organized for Distance Learning” provides four tips for how to be successful is linked HERE

Time Management 
As seen in the video, using a daily calendar is essential to organization and time management. A “Sample” calendar is linked HERE and a blank calendar is HERE for students to use. Have fun entering  classes, Zoom passwords and teacher office hours. Don’t forget to include breaks for breakfast, a snack, lunch and time for movement and mindfulness!  Try a mindful breathing exercise by clicking HERE.

Using Your Resources: School Counselors are available and ready to help!
 As always, the T.C. Williams High School counselors are here for students and their families!  School counselors are available from 8:30 a.m.- 3:30 p.m. Monday-Friday and are only an email away.  We love hearing from you!  You can find our email addresses HERE.

Take care and be well, Titans!
