Mental Health Initiative
Sycamore Bridges is working with Sycamore Community Schools on a major mental health initiative to provide “calming boxes” in all 216 elementary classrooms. The boxes will contain a variety of stress-relieving items designed to reduce anxiety and offer support for children who would benefit from redirection. The boxes also give teachers additional tools to make sure all students feel comfortable in the classroom. Each item was carefully selected by our team of school counselors. Through a generous grant, we have the boxes nearly full for the start of school! With your help, we are hoping to add weighted lap pads ($35/pad) to each calming box. Weighted lap pads are sensory tools that promote regulation, calming, and refocusing without disrupting classroom instruction. If you would like to contribute to this large-scale district initiative, CLICK HERE and type “Calming Box” in your note.
