Mrs. Dassau and Mrs. Sicari’s third graders from Merrimac Elementary School visited Sachem High School North to practice yoga with Mrs. Borak’s class. Students of all abilities came together to practice mindfulness in a safe and fun environment. The third graders were excited to share their expertise in social emotional learning yoga with the North students, as they practice it at Merrimac.

Specifically, SEL yoga helps students fill gaps of feeling uncomfortable and unaware of their thoughts or feelings. It focuses on the five core competencies of SEL – self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision-making.

Earlier this year, the third graders teamed up with Mrs. Borak’s high school students to create and deliver kindness notecards. The partnership throughout the school year has provided students of all ages with new opportunities and friendships.
