April 25: Lo-Ellen Park hosts workshop about the impact of emotions on learning

Lo-Ellen Park Secondary School will host an interactive workshop about the connection between emotions and learning on Wednesday, April 25, 2018 at 7 pm.

Guest speaker, Angie DeMarco of the Learning Disabilities Association of Sudbury, will discuss the connection between a student’s ability to self-regulate while learning in a structured educational environment.

During the workshop, parents/guardians will explore new research focused on how a learning brain develops and reacts based on its experiences. Parents/guardians will also learn how to help their children correct or redirect disruptive moods and/or impulses at home and in the classroom.

“This special workshop is part of our ongoing efforts to support students and parents/guardians as we focus on well-being,” says Lo-Ellen Park Secondary School Principal Jeff McKibbon. “Everyone is welcome to attend.”

Interested individuals are asked to rsvp by email to ridsdib@rscloud.ca or by phone at 705.522.2320 ext. 6610 by Wednesday, April 18, 2018.
