In a time when stress is high and everyone in the University City Community is challenged by COVID-19 to be safe while also taking on new roles and responsibilities, the School District of University City invites all of you to take advantage of The Peace Place. It isa new section on the District website featuring wellness tools to utilize any time you need them.
The Peace Place provides tools for relaxation, mindfulness and calm. It contains dozens of links to:
Ambient music and nature sounds
Visual relaxation scenes
Guided meditation and mindfulness exercises
Live animal cams
Calming coloring and craft exercises
Popular smartphone apps for mindfulness
The Peace Place also provides links to local and school district resources regarding health, mental health, community assistance and more. It is open to the entire University City community and will expand later this year with even more resources.
The Peace Place is offered under the District's vision of Learning Reimagined, which includes Well-Being and Joy among staff, students and families as one of its guiding principals - because students learn better when they are well and when their teachers are parents are well.
