Hello to my wonderful DMS Challenge Group!

Since we are unable to meet in person, we thought it would be fun for you to have your family join in on the DMS Challenge experience! Encourage everyone to come together in a circle and go through the PowerPoint below:

DMS Challenge 3/25 – Understanding & Managing Emotions

Have fun!

Mrs. Hamer 🙂

p.s. I’d also appreciate your feedback on how things are going! Please complete this form to check in with me.
