Mindful Minute

Submitted by david.thacker on Mon, 08/31/2020 - 15:09

Certain classes at SFJHS will be participating in what is called Mindful Minute. What this is is a time dedicated at the beginning of class, a few times a week, where students have a full minute of mindfulness. This is a quiet, uninterrupted time where no one talks or works on anything else, but just focuses on their breathing and listens to their body. The practice will help students focus on the present rather than ruminate about the past or worry about the future.

Teaching Biology with M&M's

Mr. Hallam’s ninth-grade students were introduced to some important biology concepts in the best way possible, with candy! They used M&M's candies to learn about making inferences, random sampling, and population groupings. These are important concepts to understand within biology, and students appeared to learn the material with ease.
