Mason’s Memo

Building Emotional and Physical Health through Mindful Classrooms                                                     

The Lockard Wellness Committee is introducing Mindful Classrooms to our school this semester. Mindful Classrooms is sponsored by The Partnership for a Healthy Mississippi through a grant for improving the culture of health in schools.

This program uses stretching, breathing, listening and seeing to help build social and emotional learning in students. This program is designed to benefit both our students and our faculty/staff at Lockard. We have started by leading students in mindful stretching, breathing and listening during our PE classes once a month. This will help get the students familiar with the program and make it more beneficial in the classroom. By using this program we hope to the see following outcomes for our students and adults:

  • Better ability to handle strong emotions           * Heightened Focus
  • Increased empathy for others                                * Improved Memory        
  • Improved physical condition                           * Better Concentration

Ask your child to show you a few of these stretches that we are working on.  

Music Room

K and 1st graders will be learning songs from the Blackfoot nation. Blackfoot Native Americans got their name from the dark colored moccasins that they wore. 2nd and 3rd grade students will be learning 2 Canadian folk songs who got their roots from the Native cultures there. They are called Land of the Silver Birch and Canoe Song.
