“Nosce te ipsum,” to know thyself, and understand oneself with acceptance, without judgment. That is Pine Cobble’s motto and a primary focus of our schoolwide mindfulness program. We continuously connect mindfulness to the pillars, which guide all that we do. We make a conscious effort to support our students’ overall wellbeing by offering a mindfulness program for children in all grades. Weekly mindfulness classes provide students the opportunity to learn stress management and self regulation skills, build resilience, and develop self-awareness. Mindfulness practices help students learn how to form healthy relationships, cultivate empathy for others, and in turn encourages the development of sympathetic citizens of the global community.
