Stephens Staff Discuss "Mindful of Race" at Summer Retreat

This past summer, staff at Glenn Stephens Elementary had the opportunity to spend three days together reading Ruth King’s "Mindful of Race" to continue with their work around mindfulness, race, and equity.

Affinity spaces, where groups meet based on a shared learning interest, were used to support staff discussing the book. Participants practiced a variety of mindfulness activities in their new outdoor classroom space. This retreat was supported through the Healthy and Just Classroom grant as well as Culture and Climate funds.
