“Flourishing” (part 1)
Date: Thursday, November 21, 2019 (630pm)
Location: CA Dining Hall
Special Guest Speakers: Dr. Suzanne Ritter and Michelle Schroeder-Lowrey
As you may have heard, Columbus Academy has made “Flourishing” an intentional focus for this academic year. This is the practice of using psychology to grow or “flourish” from a position of wellness, not just a method to cure sickness. Suzanne (US Counselor) and Michelle (LS Teacher), with sponsorship from Academy, pursued certifications in Positive Psychology last year and they have both been weaving this practice into professional development for the faculty since then. We are pleased to feature both of them as our first speakers for 2019-2020 Parent Education Series, where they will bring us interactive experiences to demonstrate how positive psychology affects your daily life, and how it is woven into the daily activities of your students at Columbus Academy.
