Stones on the waterMindfulness in MMSD, a joint program of the Departments of Human Resources and Student Services, is offering two upcoming courses to support staff well-being. A 10-hour Foundations in Mindfulness course runs September 21 through October 5. 

Those with little or no mindfulness practice experience will benefit most from this experiential course that is open to all MMSD employees. A year-long Classroom Action Research course "Exploring the Intersections of Equity and Mindfulness", begins September 13 and meet meets monthly. Teachers and Student Services staff with an established mindfulness practice are the intended audience; this flyer provides more details.

You can register for these courses on the MMSD PD Portal

Additional 10-hour courses and Days of Mindfulness for extended practice will be offered throughout the coming school year. For questions regarding these courses or for inquiries regarding school-based professional development or consultation on mindfulness for staff, contact Sara Parrell at
