2017 Successful Habits of Mind - An Orientation for Parents on Academic Success - PART 2
Posted 09/28/2017 03:25PM

Calling all parents

Whether your student is new or returning to York, the start of school provides opportunity for self-reflection and refinement of one’s approach to learning. Many students are currently asking themselves how do I want to go about achieving success, academic confidence, and happiness? And parents are asking themselves how can I best support my student's success, confidence, and well-being? Recent findings from cognitive psychology and neuroscience are both dispelling misperceptions of how we best learn and reinforcing decades of good, well-intentioned practices.

Join us Wednesday, October 25 for a presentation on Successful Habits of Mind. Sean Raymond, Assistant Head of School and Academic Dean, and Joyce Sherry, Dean of Students, will provide more information on best-practices and recent findings from cognitive psychology and neuroscience, such as attention-allocation, mindfulness, coping with stress, and the benefits of sleep. This presentation will be held from 6-7:00 p.m. in Room 8 and will precede that evening's York Parents Meeting.
