Navigating the Modern World Can Be Difficult for Our Students. PCEF Donors Want to Help

The deaths of two Treasure Mountain Junior High students by opioid overdose in September of 2016 brought our students' mental health to the forefront of the conversation in Park City. Not surprisingly, PCEF received over $30,000 in mindfulness and resilience Teacher Grant requests later that fall. These ranged from student mindfulness training in school to Professional Development for school counselors, nurses and other key PCSD personnel.

Fortunately, thanks to you, our donors, we were able to fund nearly all of those grant requests. We were grateful to be able to react so quickly to this critical need. In 2017 – 2018, we are funding a pilot program at Ecker Hill to train and support twelve teachers in the Mindful Schools curriculum. Teachers will participate in a twelve-week online certification course and be supported by local mindful professionals throughout the year implementing and fine-tuning their own mindfulness practice and curriculum in their classroom. Along with our community, PCEF feels that students learn best when they have the skills to cope with today's world. 

Thanks to YOU, we are funding over $30,000 in Student Wellness programs for the 2017 - 2018 school year. You help us go beyond what public education provides!
