Mindfulness Practices at Rivermont

What's Mindfulness? It can slow us down and learn to be grateful.

Here at Rivermont Elementary School, every student gets the opportunity to practice mindfulness strategies with our mindfulness educator Ms. Knowles. Mindfulness is a scientifically-based approach to develop focused attention and emotional regulation. Mindfulness means paying attention in the present moment to our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, or surrounding environment. For the sake of simplicity, we can define it as noticing what’s happening right now. It also includes the intentional nurturing of positive states of mind such as empathy and kindness.

Ms. Knowles is a certified Mindful Educator through an organization called Mindful Schools.  She has also been an educator in various educational settings for 20+ years, working in classrooms with children and teachers! Ms. Knowles has been at Rivermont Elementary for many years teaching mindfulness.
