THURSDAY SESSION DETAILS
Learn about Thursday sessions below. Here is the day's tentative schedule:
Mindful Schools will also be hosting a Mindful Room at the conference. It will be an exhibition displaying various mindfulness activities, wall displays, photos, teaching props and books for school-aged students. They curated this room with suggestions from educators from across the nation. It will be open and available for conference attendees to explore the display as well as offer a space for practice throughout Thursday and Friday of the conference. We hope visitors walk away from this exhibition inspired to try out one of these ideas in their school.

Thursday Breakout Sessions
There will be three 50 minute breakout sessions on Thursday. Each year we'll select a Sharing Team of diverse leading edge schools to share with the rest of us so that the whole can move forward with more knowledge and confidence. The Sharing Team has volunteered their time and is covering their own costs to get to our Conference-we are so grateful!
