BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. -- Todd Elementary School recently celebrated its recognition/certification as a Habits of Mind International School of Excellence with special assemblies and student presentations.

Dr. Bena Kallick, one of the authors of "Habits of Mind: A Developmental Series" presented a school plaque to Principal Nadine McDermott.

“Todd Elementary School joins an expanding international league of educational institutions dedicated to encouraging greater thoughtfulness by embracing habits of mind in an effort to better serve their students and make the world a more thoughtful place,” Kallick said.
