RESILIENCE - The Biology of Stress & The Science of Hope

posted Mar 6, 2018, 10:49 AM by Kay Jenness

RESILIENCE – a one-hour documentary that delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the birth of a new movement to treat and prevent Toxic Stress.  One of the leading causes of everything from heart disease and cancer to substance abuse and depression, extremely stressful experiences in childhood can alter brain development and have lifelong effects on health and behavior.


But, as experts and practitioners profiled in RESILIENCE are proving, what’s predictable in preventable. Physicians, educators, social workers and communities are daring to talk about the effects of abuse and neglect, domestic violence, divorce, parent in jail and substance abusing parents.  Then using cutting edge science to help the next generation break the cycles of adversity and disease.

Many of the 4th graders are already improving dramatically on the slopes, AND, tons of fun is being had!  

As long as the weather cooperates, our final trip to the Snow Bowl will be this Wednesday, January 17th.  If not, we have one make up date scheduled for Wednesday, January 24th.

The bus leaves at 9AM, please be on time!

Be sure to send your student to school dressed to ski/snowboard:    

A winter coat, warm socks, warm layers, snow pants, mittens or gloves.  If you have your own ski helmet, sunglasses or goggles, you are welcome to bring those too.  

** Please note, snacks will NOT be allowed on the bus, unfortunately we had trouble picking up after ourselves.  Students can eat their snack before we leave, or later in the afternoon.  We will return to school for our usual lunch time.  THINK SNOW!
