Mira Costa’s Social Emotional Wellness Committee invites community members to watch a video created by Challenge Success.

Wondering what the Social Emotional Wellness Committee at MCHS has been working on all year? What is Challenge Success anyway? Here are two opportunities for the community to learn more and get involved. Mira Costa’s Social Emotional Wellness Committee invites community members to watch a video created by Challenge Success. Based on a popular workshop, “The Well-Balanced Student,” is an interactive video for parents led by Dr. Denise Pope, Challenge Success co-founder and Senior Lecturer at the Stanford University Graduate School of Education.  Dr. Pope and her colleagues have helped parents and school districts across the country understand the stress students are facing—the lack of sleep, worry, cheating, and health issues which can occur in today’s intense, academically focused culture.
