2018 HEF Grant | Mindfulness & Growth Mindset Curriculum

Lindsay Lewis, Social Worker
Alward Elementary

Funds from a HEF grant helped purchase books to reinforce the mindfulness and growth mindset curriculum at Alward Elementary in the Emotional Impairment program. Recent studies have shown that mindfulness in schools is effective in helping students develop the coping skills they need to be successful. The use of books and stories helps students better engage with the curriculum. General education classrooms at Alward, as well as students enrolled in the EI classroom at Jamestown Upper Elementary, have access to these materials.
