April 15, 2021—In continuing with their series of events aimed at connecting with their community, Campbell Middle School virtually hosted families for “Dancing with the Counselors” on April 8.
The event is the third installment in a series dating back to the last school year—starting with “Painting with the Counselors” and followed by “Yoga with the Counselors.” The goal is to promote well-being during the stressful times brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Campbell Middle School Principal Rashad Godbolt dances during “Dancing with the Counselors.”
“Campbell Middle School counselors believe in self-care,” said Sabrina Barnett, seventh grade counselor. “We utilized dancing as a relevant form of expression and self-care that allows everyone to be individually creative and unique.”
Set up in the Campbell cafeteria, Barnett and fellow counselors were joined by families through Zoom. The lesson was led by former Cy-Fair High School student Oscar Martinez, who has now opened a dance studio called “The Palladium.”
“With everything that is going on, we will continue to provide a mental health break,” said Barnett. “We want to provide self-care for our parents, students and community. These events also serve as an opportunity to talk about academic topics with the counselors.”
