Susan Mordecai presents “Home Sweet Home”
We hope you will join us for this wonderful family event!
Bring mindfulness home for the summer!
Together we will experience some of the mindfulness practices that your children have learned in the Mindful SELF program that has been supported by the Ottauquechee Health Foundation.   Susan Mordecai will lead the practices that support focused attention, body awareness, and kindness. The skill of mindful communication will be introduced.  The goal is for parents and caregivers to maintain the happiness that most of us strive for.

Students are encouraged to attend, and will participate in some mindfulness practice with Susan, as well as an art project with Caitlin Eastman.  Dinner will follow for all, free of charge, in the WES cafeteria.
Please RSVP to with the number of people in your family who plan to attend.  Thanks!


We are looking for a parent to join a playground committee to identify pressing priorities for playground enhancement. Our committee meeting will be June 1st at 11:00. Please email Maggie at if interested and available!
