Newton Community Ed & Newton Public Schools sponsor “Mindfulness in Education” On Thursdays, May 1, 8, & 15

Newton Community Ed’s spring Mindfulness series should be of special interest to parents in the Newton community. It is running in partnership with the Newton Public Schools, and focuses on the growing field of Mindfulness in education. Mindfulness has been introduced in K-12 school systems nationwide; it has been shown to enhance motivation and focus, and to improve emotional and educational outcomes for students. Join us to hear from experts in the field as we explore the research, uses, and results of this practice. Sessions run on Thursdays May 1, 8, & 15 at Newton South High School from 7-9pm. The cost for individual talks is $35, with a discounted series price of $90. Call NCE at 617-559-6999 or visit www.newtoncommunityed.org for more information or to register.
