We are in the process of rolling out our new health and wellness initiative in the Upper School that centers around encouraging positive decision-making as well as physical, emotional and mental wellness. On Wednesday, April 6, we will be showing “Northwest Trees” to the entire Upper School faculty and student body during the extended FLEX period. Due to the prevalence of strong language and footage of marijuana and tobacco use, you may opt your child out by contacting one of us either by phone or email. Following the 45-minute video, we will lead students and faculty in a discussion regarding thoughts and emotions the film may have drawn up.
If you would like to preview this documentary, it will be available on the health page along with “Chasing the Dragon”, the FBI’s newest documentary aimed at educating youth on the dangers of opioid addiction. The links below give the most up-to-date research on the harmful effects of marijuana. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to email or call us directly.
