Students at Mills Pond engaged in a variety of activities that promoted peace during their Peace Day celebration on Sept. 30.
    
Dressed head to toe in white, the students were involved in mindful actions, such as various yoga poses, breathing exercises, peaceful songs and meditation techniques – each of which were also connected to the district’s focus on social-emotional learning. Mills Pond Elementary also highlights the good deeds of its students with a “Growing Kindness Tree” wall, where leaves display kindness acts.
