Mindfulness 101 via Zoom 
We have the power to avoid all the negativity on the news, social media, and advertising distractions. We can avoid feeling overwhelmed and become a beacon of hope without a lot of work. How can you make mindfulness a daily practice in your hectic life? Repetition is how we form habits, whether good or bad. Mindfulness is no different. We’ll discuss gaining control of your life with ease and will practice a simple 5-minute meditation.

Dear Reeds Brook Families,

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! Although this year promises to be different than past years, please know that we are eager and ready to meet our new students and see our returning students again. Our commitment to supporting all students and providing appropriate challenges continues in these new modes of learning. We look forward to seeing students back in the building or working with them if they are full remote.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we face uncertainty and change. We truly appreciate all the work parents have done to help their students continue to learn even in different learning modes. We are confident that together we can move forward to have a great year!
