Greetings from the office of Indian Hill Pupil Services. My name is Erica Leppert, and the first thing I want you to know about me is that each day I come to the Indian Hill School District, I strive to provide each student with an educational experience that sparks in them a passion and love for learning. This is my personal #IHPromise to you.

The Pupil Services Department I’m a part of is committed to going beyond academics and serving the varied needs of your child. One way we do this is through promoting awareness and education regarding brain health, or what Indian Hill School District calls building #BRAVEminds.

Stated simply: When your child’s brain is healthy, your child is ready to learn.

Indian Hill Schools offers a variety of opportunities for students and parents to build #BRAVEminds. As such, we are launching a new series of stories targeted on helping you learn how we – as a District – engage in mindfulness and embrace a growth mindset.

The best moment of my day is when I am able to be in a classroom watching teachers do what they love, and watching students learn and grow as a result of that teacher’s focus. From Bring Change 2 Mind – a group at Indian Hill High School that strives to reduce the stigma surrounding brain health, and help fellow students become aware of their own brain health; to our partnership with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital to provide school-based therapeutic services to increase students’ access to brain health care – these are some of the stories I will be sharing with you.

This is all a part of developing a Learning-Based Culture for each student, and it is key to our Strategic Plan for Transformational Excellence within the District.

If you are interested in finding out more about #BRAVEminds and brain health in Indian Hill Schools, you can contact your child’s counselor. Please make sure you look for our series in the upcoming months, along with opportunities for you to hear experts in the field share ways that you can help your child maintain a healthy brain.
