Daily Recess

Mandala allows students at all ages to have a minimum of thirty minutes for daily recess. Students need to take a break from learning to exercise their bodies and minds. You may see us playing in our own backyard, walking to Hamlin or Warren Park, or running in the gym at The Boys and Girls Club of East Aurora.

Community Discussion Group

Join us on Tuesday, January 23rd for our monthly discussion group. 6:00 - 7:30 PM at The Mandala School

This month's book:

Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life: Life-Changing Tools for Healthy Relationships by Marshall B. Rosenberg, PhD

Find the free podcast by Rosenberg on Spotify by searching, "Nonviolent Communication."

The title is just a suggestion; the discussion group is still beneficial if you don't have time to read.

These meetings focus on ideas surrounding learning, motivation, parenting, brain science, human nature, and more! All are welcome (no children please).
