Appreciating Peace and Mindfulness
Pre-K and Kindergarten students enjoyed hearing the story I Am Peace: A Book of Mindfulness by Susan Verde this week. The book was read by Lisa Gaenslen, Lower School librarian, to recognize the International Day of Peace. Officially known as World Peace Day, the day is a United Nations-sanctioned holiday observed annually each September 21. After the story, students discussed what peace means to them. Gaenslen then led a guided meditation to help students feel peaceful before practicing mindfulness—an important Dragon skill—by learning Yoga and reading quietly.
