Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
As an official partner of The Dana Foundation’s Brain Awareness initiative, Indian Creek School launched “Smarter Teaching, Better Learning: Neuroscience Research in Action at Indian Creek School” in January 2015. This year, ICS is excited to continue the momentum as we celebrate Brain Awareness Week 2016! We all know that Indian Creek is a “brain school.” Brain Awareness Week gives us the opportunity to highlight the neuroscience research that goes into the incredible teaching and learning that happens at ICS every day! This week, we will share a collection of brain facts, neuroscience articles written by ICS faculty, informative videos created by students and teachers, and a gallery of brain-related student art work by email to faculty, through social media, in a “Brain Awareness Edition” newsletter, and through a Virtual Brain Awareness Expo, on the school website. A highlight of this week’s celebration will be a residency with Integrative and Holistic Life Coach Erin Bishop, who will be on campus Tuesday through Thursday. Ms. Bishop will run Mindfulness/Meditation sessions for Pre-K4, fourth grade, fifth grade, eighth grade, and a selection of Upper School classes. She will also hold drop-in sessions for faculty and staff. Visit our 2016 Virtual Brain Awareness Expo for more details: http://www.indiancreekschool.org/node/11836
