Wellness Center

The Wellness team is running a six-week mindfulness group during academy on Wednesdays. We are partnering with Dr. Kristen Freeman (St. Mary’s professor and parent of Acalanes students) in facilitating the group. The purpose of this group is twofold: first, to introduce mindfulness breathing techniques to help students improve anxiety and stress-related symptoms; and second, to explore the potential positive impact on students’ academic performance. These sessions will focus on developing coping strategies and tools to manage stress and anxiety in the school environment, ultimately aiming to enhance classroom performance and attention.
If you have any students that are interested, please email Patrick Turner (Wellness Coordinator). A pass will be sent to students to inform them and provide consent forms to complete and return.
If you have any questions or concerns and or want more information on what mindfulness is, feel free to reach out to Patrick Turner as well.
