A Mindful Moment

Thanks to a partnership between Magnolia Trace Elementary’s Positive Behavior Intervention Support Team (PBIS) and its PTA, students can visit their new Mindful Moments Lab where they can calm their minds, reframe their thoughts positively, and engage in mindful activities. Magnolia Trace’s Mindful Moments Lab was the 2018-2019 recipient of the Louisiana PTA Advocacy Award.

The PBIS team worked through the PTA-Mini Grant Program to purchase sensory station materials (mindful cards, thinking putty, kinetic rings, play foam, sensory water beads, etc.). Multiple families volunteered to paint murals in the lab, donate inspirational quotes, organize a social skills library, and teach yoga sessions.

The Mindful Moments Lab is open daily, before school and during students’ recess times. It is supervised by the school guidance counselor and MHP to provide supportive feedback for students who need and/or want time to practice social skills with peers. Before leaving the lab, students close with a meditation to slow down their breathing, becoming fully aware of their thoughts and emotions prior to returning to class. This empowers students to better self-regulate their actions throughout the school day.
