EMS Mindfulness

From the desk of: Mrs. Juarez, Principal, El Mirage

As a school, we are committed to ensuring that our students feel they are in a safe school environment. Our students receive daily and weekly structured Mindfulness lessons. Mindfulness helps to develop a greater awareness of relationships and how to manage them (including difficult ones at home), as well as offering a richer understanding of things like self-esteem and optimism. Mindfulness trains students to understand and direct their attention with greater awareness and skill. this may improve the capacity to concentrate and be less distracted, as well as their working memory and ability to plan.

Bridges to Success Gingerbread Houses

As an incentive for demonstrating the core values of the program; positive relationships, successful completion of assignments for the week, respect of self and others, positive attendance, and positive contribution to the community, the students are invited to participate in an art or craft activity at the end of each week as part of the Art Elective.  Students have made items that they could give as gifts for the holidays such as worry pencils, glittered ornaments, and decoupaged candle jars.  Tuesday, December 18, the Desert Valley SELPA’s PBIS Team taught the students how to make Gingerbread Houses.  The entire team, eight members, worked side by side with the students as they each made their own house.  The team was amazed at how focused the students were on their projects and how they supported each other toward the completion of their houses.
