The CALM Zone
The CALM Zone, located in IPoly’s Connection Center, provides on-site services to students and their families to help students build supportive relationships and community on campus. Children need to develop the necessary skills to cope with their stressors in order to learn. We use curriculum-based interventions to provide techniques that educate beyond the traditional curriculum and academic influences.
It is nearly impossible to learn when the mind is hijacked by uncontrollable thoughts and emotions. Now more than ever, students are experiencing high levels of stress, anxiety, and depression. The CALM Zone provides a warm and inviting place for students to decompress when overwhelmed. The space can be used for up to 15 minutes as long as the student requests permission from their teacher.
