MINDFUL MOMENTS - The 2019-2020 SEL Initiative

  • As part of the SEL (Social Emotional Learning) initiatives, Mrs. Makris and a team of IMPLEMENT* Leaders in Training within Sayville School District are furthering the districtwide plan to address anxiety and mental-health issues within the school community.  “Research supports,” Mrs. Makris continued, “that mindfulness and meditation does the following: 1. Reduces anxiety, stress and depression; 2. Reduces problem behaviors like suspensions, bullying and hostility; 3. Improves resilience and coping skills; 4. Increases physical well-being; 5. Cultivates positive school climates, and 6. Enhances focus and attention which supports positive academic outcomes.”
