Grand Avenue Middle School has been piloting mindfulness and relaxation sessions for students on a voluntary basis throughout the school day.

“During these sessions, the students practice relaxation methods to assist in the reduction of stressful thoughts and feelings,” explained organizer Dr. Maura Kempton, chairperson of special education at Grand Avenue. 

Weekly sessions are being held during the final 20 minutes of lunch periods. The program will continue indefinitely. 

“The response to the program has been very positive and attendance has been strong,” said organizer and school psychologist Dr. Marla Bayles. “Middle school is a stressful time and the students really benefit from taking a break to focus on their physical and mental well-being.”

Student ambassadors from Merrick Avenue and Grand Avenue middle schools recently collaborated on a presentation for the elementary school students in Merrick, North Merrick, Bellmore and North Bellmore. 

Students spoke about the district’s community cupboard and encouraged the elementary schools to come up with ways that they could be part of the mission to end hunger. 

“Students shared their roles as ambassadors, the work that they do in their individual school and districtwide, facts about poverty as well as what our current cupboard needs and is doing,” said Grand Avenue Assistant Principal Andrew Del Rosario.

“The most exciting part of the presentation came when the ambassadors turned it over to the elementary school students and opened up the floor for questions and discussion to brainstorm ways that they can help and participate,” added Merrick Avenue Assistant Principal Katelyn Dunn.

The elementary schools were very receptive and the students were excited to be part of the mission.
