The goal of the Yoga Stories program at Turkey Hill School in Orange is teach students the art of mindfulness to help them more successful cope with the challenges of school – academic and otherwise. It began 5 years ago as a program for 1st graders and this year the program expanded to include 5th graders. Students report that yoga is helping them to feel calmer, to notice their thoughts, to express their emotions through movement, drawing, and writing. The 5th graders have become role models and friends to the 1st graders. Teachers Gina Malafonte & Tina Mongillo say Yoga Stories is not only creating strong, healthy bodies and minds, but creating a stronger school community. A huge shout out to yoga instructor MaryAnn Haverstock!
The impact of the Jamie Hulley Arts Foundation is like the arts itself – vibrant, individually defined, enriching in a manner difficult to quantify, momentarily beautiful, life changing…
The Jamie Hulley Arts Foundation was created in 2002 in memory of Jamie Alaine Hulley. Jamie was a creative soul who had the gift of seeing the world as a thing of beauty and of making all who knew her feel special. Jamie’s curiosity was insatiable, her laugh infectious, and her love of taking artistic risks unlimited. Sharing a love of the arts and providing opportunities for others to develop their artistic talents and pursue their dreams is a perfect legacy for Jamie.
