A Helpful Space
All Osceola students have access to the new free "A Helpful Space" virtual app through their ClassLink login. There are rooms specifically designed for elementary students and secondary students to take a much-needed break by clicking around bitmoji virtual classrooms and exploring different resources. Elementary students can click items around the room that will take them to a video or a website for everything from deep-breathing exercises, funny videos, virtual puzzles, and calming music, to a website called "Walk In Our Shoes," where students can hear stories about other students and learn about mental health. Secondary students can also explore their own room of helpful mental health resources, including what to do if they or a friend is thinking about self harm at any time. The staff bitmoji classroom provides adult social emotional learning resources, ideas for keeping healthy, calming music, funny videos, and places to reach out to if help if needed.
