MJH Bears, we are thinking about each of you and your families and hoping you are well! We will be posting resources in order to provide additional help while you are away from us learning from home. Sometimes during challenging times, sharing uplifting things can also provide much comfort to us as well. There is much to be said about shared experiences. When we know we are not alone, we tend to be able to endure more than if we feel that no one understands us. If there is something we can do to help, please reach out and email us. We are here to help you through this time of uncertainty, together.
