Operation Silent Reading Garden

Project GoalThe Silent Reading Garden will be a part of an ongoing effort on campus that helps support mental health and overall student well being. The garden will provide a silent, meditative, safe space for all students to come and decompress from a stressful school day. It will be an electronic-free zone in which students are only invited into the garden to be mindful, distraction free, or to read a book they choose. This garden will fill a wide gap in the support and resources currently available to students at our school in that the students do not currently have a designated space for silent, mindful reflection and reading.
