Social-Emotional Learning

Mindfulness has been part of the fabric of life at ACDS for the past few years. Teachers, parents, and children have grown to appreciate the positive effects of the mindfulness program on daily life in our school community.

Children in Lower School learn about the workings of their own brains, and they can often be heard making observations about their own behavior -- "I need a brain break; my amygdala is fired up!" Middle Schoolers practice brain breaks as well, drawing on their knowledge of basic neuroscience to understand their own development in the preteen years.
