MindUp and self regulation
MindUP™ teaches social and emotional learning skills that link cognitive neuroscience, positive psychology and mindful awareness training utilizing a brain-centric approach.

The Hawn Foundation transforms children’s lives by providing vital social and emotional learning programs to reduce stress and aggressive behavior, improve focus and academic performance and increase resiliency for success in school and in life.

Our class practices mindful breathing and self-regulation skills daily.  Students are learning about how their brain works and ways to help themselves successfully respond to stressful situations. They learn about and practice kindness and gratitude as well.

Important Dates

To kick off the 2018-19 School Year, Meet and Greet will be held on Wednesday, August 8th during two sessions in the morning.  The schedule will be a little shorter than in years past as this is a teacher work day and teachers have required meetings in the afternoon.  Meet and Greet is an opportunity for students to meet their teachers, drop off supplies, and go over classroom expectations. Please plan on attending with your child.  Pictures will not be taken during Meet and Greet. Please plan to attend your assigned session to allow equal time and balanced sessions with your child’s teacher.  The first official full day of school is on Thursday, August 9th.

Here is the morning schedule for Meet and Greet:  Please attend your assigned session.
