Middle School Culture Of Mindfulness

Mindfulness is an integral part of our Middle School community. It enhances our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. We embody, practice, and promote mindfulness to further the social, emotional and cognitive development of our students and the self-care of our teachers. Many of our Middle School teachers and administration have been trained in mindfulness techniques to help facilitate this objective.
 
Before every class period, classroom teachers lead the students in a brief “Mindful Moment” (typically from 30 seconds to two minutes) to assist the students in getting focused and ready to learn. In addition, our Head of Middle School teaches an optional six-week mindfulness course twice a year for students. Mindfulness trainers also come to campus several times per year to lead our teachers through mindfulness sessions to help them better deal with stress and fatigue.
 
Scientific research on mindfulness in schools the past decade reveal benefits for students including:
  • Better Focus
  • Increased capacity for learning
  • Improved observation skills
  • Emotional development
  • Increased self-compassion
  • Improved grades and behavior
  • Less impulsivity
We hope that your student takes full advantage of this opportunity at Lausanne, and we’re thankful for your support of this program throughout the year.
