Event description

Description

On the evening of Tuesday, November 28 from 6:30 – 8:30pm in the Paly Media Arts Center, Paly and Gunn jointly invite you to attend an event focused on how parents, educators, and students can work together at home and in our schools to prevent the epidemics of bullying, addiction, and suicide. Research has shown we can do this by creating a preventative culture in our community – one that fosters an epidemic of Hope, Help, and Strength. The evening will provide an overview of the Sources of Strength program being implemented at both high schools to achieve this aim. It will feature Dr. Shashank Joshi (Stanford Associate Professor of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry), Paly and Gunn educators helping to coordinate the program, and most importantly student leaders helping to spread messages of hope, help, and strength to their peers. These students will share with you from their own experience how we can have conversations about what we all struggle with in life and where it is we find the strength to overcome.

Key to the success of this program is developing awareness and shared vocabulary at home and in our community so that families can support the work we are doing in our schools. Both Gunn and Paly families, come together and join us Tuesday, November 28th from 6:30pm-8:30pm in The Paly Media Arts Center. We sincerely hope to see you there!
