I appreciate your intention to support mindfulness in the academic setting. Would love to see this at the other schools (Hart Middle School specifically, as my daughter will be attending there)
Hello! My name is Ms. Melina Chynoweth.
I am a Learning Consultant at Reuther Middle School. I am seeking your help to raise enough funds to create a Mindfulness Space within the supervised study skills classroom.
This is my proposal’s compelling why…
Research shows that stress causes our brain’s ability to think logically to go “offline” because our bodies treat stress like a threat. Unfortunately there is a tremendous increase in stress, depression, and anxiety in today’s youth.
In Reuther’s supervised study skills classes, 33% of scheduled in students have been observed as falling into that category. In school, different learning environments may or may not work well for students and they may feel an increased level of stress working on group projects or on teams. Therefore, providing a space to our students where they can receive mindfulness-based interventions is important.
This space will provide students the opportunity to destress and practice mindfulness as they continue to learn. We need to help our students take a step back and teach their brains to focus on one task at a time so they are able to move forward and reach their maximum potential.
A separate mindfulness space within the supervised study skills classroom will benefit students who are not achieving at the same level as their peers due to the need for the tools, space and time to self regulate and refocus.
♥ This is where you can help! ♥
Help us reach our goal!
With your support, the following items and furniture will be purchased to create the mindfulness space and provide students with the opportunity to self-regulate, refocus, and reduce stress, anger, and/or anxiety and be fully engaged in the learning process.
Thank you for your consideration!
