Mindfulness in the Classroom
Stress and anxiety in our children and teens is increasing at an alarming rate. Wello’s a system-level, capacity-building approach is helping schools implement mindfulness tools to support the social and emotional health of students. With support from Leadership Green Bay in 2018, a Mindfulness Room was established at Washington Middle School (WMS) to build upon the foundation of learning happening throughout the school. Our current work aims to scale to the elementary schools that feed into WMS with tools and training to reduce stress and anxiety.
