Riverhead Middle School students are learning stress management and reduction skills as part of a new mindfulness program led by health teacher Lindsay Lindenbaum. 

“The program brings mindfulness to the classroom and is specifically geared for school-age students,” said Lindenbaum. 

As part of the program, students have been practicing deep breathing techniques in health class, along with tableside stretching and guided imagery.
