Coordinator of Mental Health Cheri Wroblewski says one year later, a lot of area children are still not stable. Many schools are employing different techniques to help children slow down and practice mindfulness themselves.

Wroblewski encourages educators and families to be more present in each and every day and to check in regularly with the children in your lives.
