This T-Shirt Says It All!
Our Best Gift This Holiday Season


If you walk through the halls at West Generation Academy, you just might see students sporting these t-shirts. Generation Schools Network and our partners and supporters received a wonderful gift in the PARCC score results and are so proud of our students and teachers!
Bringing Resources to Rural Schools

In December, Generation Schools Network was fortunate to assist Ignacio and Aguilar School Districts in Colorado in winning Reading Ignite! Grants. Additionally, Bennett Elementary School won a Connect for Success Grant. 

We are excited about the resources being provided to these rural schools to improve their educational offerings!

A BIG thank you to the funders and schools who continue to seek effective change by working with Generation Schools Network!
A Special Offer from Generation Schools Network! Request a GSN Mindfulness Advocacy Unit to Test with Your Students and Provide Feedback 

What is mindfulness? 
According the Mindfulness in Schools Project, mindfulness is "learning to direct our attention to our experience as it unfolds, moment by moment, with open-minded curiosity and acceptance." Mindfulness refers to the process of quieting down, focusing on your breath, and taking a minute to be aware of your present state and surroundings.

Students who practice mindfulness in schools have shown significant improvements in: 
  • Paying attention
  • Self-control
  • Classroom participation
  • Respect for others
  • Decreased symptoms of depression and ADHD 
Research shows that meditation changes your brain:
  • Increases grey matter to areas responsible for learning and memory
  • Decreases grey matter in areas responsible for anxiety and stress 
Generation Schools Network would like to provide you with a free copy of our Mindfulness Unit, which is currently being prepared for publication along with other thematic units for our Advocacy program. This unit is best used with middle and high school students. If you are interested, please contact us at kpeyton@generationschools.org and share where you'd use the unit to receive your free copy along with a survey link to share feedback.
