Growth Mindset: Gearing Up For a Successful School Year

Posted on September 16, 2015

Eaton Arrowsmith/Eaton Cognitive Improvement Centre Victoria and Redmond to Host a Special Presentation by Registered Clinical Counsellor Rebecca Mitchell

Change Your WordsWhether your child is entering Kindergarten, transitioning to a new school, or continuing at the same school with a new teacher, having a growth mindset can be the key to a successful start, setting a positive tone for the whole school year!

The phrase “Back to School”, can bring many thoughts about the upcoming school year – students may be worried about having a new teacher or making new friends; parents might be apprehensive about how to support a struggling child through academic and/or social difficulties; students may be moving on to a new school experience, whether it is a new program, Kindergarten, that first year in high school, or off to college or university, and not know what to expect. The first weeks of school can be a time of worry, but they can also be a wonderfully productive time of cultivating a growth mindset that will contribute towards a smooth transition to the academic year ahead.

On Monday October 5th (Victoria) or  Monday October 19th (Redmond), from 1:00pm to 3:00pm, Registered Clinical Counsellor Rebecca Mitchell of The Wishing Star will be presenting on “Growth Mindset – Gearing up for a Successful School Year”. In this presentation, she will provide growth mindset strategies and resources; a timeline for activities, and discussion topics for parents; and suggestions for articles and books to further parents’ understanding of growth mindset.

Please join us at EAS/EA Adults Victoria or Redmond for what promises to be an informative and inspirational presentation! Coffee and treats will be provided!
