mindfulnessThis year in advisory classes at Riverview, students and teachers will be learning about mindfulness and how it can provide students with skills to be more successful in school, their lives, and their futures.

What IS Mindfulness?

“Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us” (Mindful.org).
