Roosevelt Explores 'Mindfulness'
Roosevelt Elementary School kindergartners are learning how to develop a healthy mind and body in ways that will help them heighten their awareness and improve their focus and attention. The initiative is called Mindfulness and it was brought to Roosevelt by the schools’ Site Based Committee.
The effort kicked off with a school-wide activity in which students made their own “Mind Jars,” a simple tool that helps students concentrate on how their brain functions.
