Need a way to help with water intake at school? I was skeptical of it at first but finally caved and bought the cirkul bottle it has helped me nearly double my water intake since having it!! It’s small enough to carry around the classroom, tons of different flavors, and the metal bottle keeps the water cold throughout the school day! 😍 let me know if you want to know more about my favorite flavors so far! Also! Having an Amazon echo with reminders scheduled helped remind me to drink up too!

Currently have a 5th grade girl who is struggling with classroom behaviors and choices. When questioned, she says she wants to be a boy, but her parents won’t allow it. Obviously, she is struggling with more than making good choices at school. Her parents are very kind and appreciative of all we do for their child, but they are also clearly struggling with this. Anyone ever been in a similar situation or have some advice on how we can best support the student?
