P.S./M.S 108, School of Authors

From Detention Center to FM's 1st Wellness Room!

It has been one year since F.M. transformed P.S. 108’s former detention room, which eventually became a storage space after school officials realized it was no longer conducive to being a healthy way of reprimanding students, into a thriving area for peace and wellness. Since FM transformed the locker room, children from Pre-K to 8th grade have participated in our classes, learning various ways of re-centering themselves through meditation, breath work, yoga, writing, and healthy eating; while cultivating inner focus, empathy, and strength. We also have courses for the teachers and parents so that they can cultivate the inner practices alongside their students and children.

Our next project is to transform the second locker room into a space-themed Wellness Room for the children at P.S. 138, whose school shares half of the building with P.S. 108. The students at P.S. 138 are considered “special needs,” so they require extra loving, mindful, and gentle care not only in moments of crisis but also throughout their waking day. So, FM is raising money to transform this locker room, which is now P.S. 138’s storage room, into a vibrant, galaxy-themed healing space. Your support will help us raise the capital to start our second Wellness Room in September 2023.
