Refocus Centers

What is the purpose of Refocus Centers?

Refocus Centers are tools that teachers and kids can use to break from the classroom in order to recenter themselves before they return ready to learn.  It is a resource that kids and teachers can use for many years to come.

What does a Refocus Center have on it?

Each center is a Colorado nature theme that includes facts, sounds, and sensory stimulation.  Each center is unique with varying subjects, textures, and 2nd Step resources.  The centers also represent Pine Lane's Habits of Character: Perseverance, Leadership, Empathy, Bravery, Ethical, Accountable, Respectful, and Service.
