*Self-Care Practices:

         In the fall of 2019, Granby Public Schools students and staff will be working with mindfulness expert Kate Forest in using self-care practices throughout the day to help relax, become more focused, and calm. These practices have been demonstrated to have a positive impact on student's social-emotional health and have improved time on learning.
