All Marjory Stoneman Douglas Zone families, teachers, and staff are invited to a special event where peer counseling students and Mind-Body Ambassador Club students will host a workshop with the team at The Center for Mind-Body Medicine.
Participants will learn fun and practical mind-body skills, including meditation, movement, imagery, and more. The students will share how these mind-body tools have been helpful to them and why they are excited to spread it to their peers, their families, and their community. If you’re a teacher or staff member in the zone which includes, Coral Springs Middle School, Country Hills Elementary, Eagle Ridge Elementary, Heron Heights Elementary, Park Trails Elementary, Riverglades Elementary, and Westglades Middle, come find out how you might be able to bring mind-body skills to your school.
