School can be a great adventure or a real struggle. Sometimes both. This fun and supportive group will help students enhance their resiliency skills such as how to bounce back from drama, focus in school, make good friends, and lift mood. Using mindfulness activities, students will build a "tool box" to ease their worries and fears, trust that they can get through anything, tap into their strengths to try new things, and be comfortable in their own skin.
