We are so grateful for our very special gardener friend Kim, (aka Ms. T. to her 4th grade students) in the Denville, NJ public schools district. She had recently applied for a grant to bring our #PullYourWeeds® program to the 4th graders!
We received the exciting news last night that the grant was approved! Starting next month we will meet with each class virtually from now until the end of the school year for a 35-45 minute social and emotional learning (SEL) workshop all rooted in the vocabulary and tools from our programs. Each session will feature an interactive mindfulness exercise, activity and craft!
Now more than ever students are in need of positive resources and tools to help them navigate their emotions (at home and in-school). Our virtual/interactive workshops add a much needed brightness to any classroom environment. For more information or to book a workshop with Shanna Truffini for your school please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
