Students at MED practice mindfulness as a regular part of their school day. Shown here, Mrs. Myers’ 3rd grade class takes advantage of the unseasonably warm weather with a visit to MED’s outdoor mindfulness area, located in a tranquil spot on campus along the shore of Smith Pond. There, they practiced breathing and listening exercises to find their “anchor spot” and made note of their experiences.
in their mindfulness workbooks. The mindfulness area was created by students this past July as part of MED’s “Summer of Wellness” program.
