Students at Merrimac Elementary School celebrated social-emotional learning on SEL Day, March 11, when students participated in chair yoga as an activity to promote mindfulness, improve mind and body balance, increase focus and attention, increase flexibility and promote mobility.

SEL Day is a day led by SEL4US and the Urban Assembly that invites schools and communities around the globe to celebrate the importance of social-emotional learning.

As part of the day Sachem was invited to participate in chair yoga, and Merrimac Elementary along with Lynwood Avenue Elementary teachers participated in a 35-minute chair yoga session.
