I wanted to share with you some of the beautiful and informative projects that my students (French 1) did - Mrs. Rousseaux

Watch this video that Mr. Reitz shared with his Mindfulness club students with insights into how mindfulness can help us cope in this unique moment. Pause. Be Still. Notice more space, more feelings. Even just one breath can change the moment. Take the time to learn this simple practice to be present and appreciate the little things. We can all use some of his techniques during these challenging times as well as in the future.  If you & your family would like further support, please email: jreitzenstein@bhusd.org
