WKHS Virtual Calm Cafe

 

WKHS Calm Cafe Mission
& History

Life can be overwhelming, anxiety invoking and stressful. 

Sometimes we all need a healthy space to escape.

Calm Cafe is a movement and mission for all students and staff in our WKHS family to have a safe space to feel emotionally supported, build skills of regulation & learn to nurture our calm centers through restorative and mindfulness practices. 

In our building we share a physical space, virtually we can now share this space too.

In the 2018-19 school year a group of dedicated students and staff worked together to create a safe space for students to use to regulate emotions, decompress and find a way to connect with others in a meaningful manner.

This virtual space is meant for students and families to use as a simple resource,

it is periodically updated but not regularly monitored.
