I have a great deal of gratitude for being awarded a John Russel Applegate Grant. Being awarded this grant has given me an opportunity to achieve my long-awaited goal of being able to obtain an EMDRIA-approved EMDR Certification! This will be one more effective and research-based tool to add to our ESU 16 Wellness toolbox. I am so excited and eager to see the effectiveness of this process as time goes on. Again much gratitude and thanks for the John Russell Applegate Grant! Sincerely, Jamie Meismer, LIMHP ESU16 Wellness Team Member Please feel free to explore the two links below to learn more about this process.

DIRECTIONS: Do you ever get the feeling your children are not listening to you and it becomes upsetting? Children may not follow directions because they didn’t hear you or were distracted, or you gave too many directions at one time, or you made a suggestion instead of a direction. Chances that your child will listen and successfully follow your directions increase when you make sure that your direction is clearly stated. https://mediahub.unl.edu/media/18786 https://mediahub.unl.edu/media/19419 #fitandhealthykids

Partner Up Rodeo is today! The Partner Up Rodeo is an annual event for students with disabilities that initially was supported by the Nebraska High School Rodeo Association for more than 8 years. In 2012, the event expanded to include ESU 16 as a host partner along with the support of the MPCC Rodeo Team from McCook and North Platte. Community volunteers from area businesses and schools donate their time, their horses and their smiles to help the kids have a great day. Participants have the opportunity to ride a horse, throw a rope, ride in a horse drawn wagon and much more while being partnered with a JH or HS student or rodeo athlete. This year proves to be our largest year yet with 200 students with disabilities participating alongside 104 student volunteers and over 100 community volunteers.

Mindfulness is the practice of being fully in the moment. Children who are taught and practice mindfulness strategies are better able to self-regulate, have improved social skills, sleep better, and demonstrate higher self-esteem. Create a glitter bottle to help self soothe and calm themselves down by breathing deeply. https://fitandhealthykids.unl.edu/discover-and-design #Fitandhealthykids
