Enjoy your summer!
During the months of August and September all students at Borton will
be participating in a series of classes in which the dramatic arts will serve
as a basis for developing mindfulness skills. In particular, the students
will be engaging with age-appropriate storytelling and theater games, as
well as hands-on activities, to help train such valuable abilities as focus,
emotional regulation and interpersonal awareness. At the same time,
teachers will participate in a series of professional development
workshops that will give them a deeper understanding of mindfulness
and guidance on how to take core techniques from the student classes
and reinforce them throughout the year.
We want to thank the Borton Site Council for approving the Tax Credit
funds to help us come together as a kind community.
