The film, Paper Tigers, will be shown on Tuesday, December 5, 2017 in the Fridley High School auditorium.
Paper Tigers is a documentary that chronicles a year at Lincoln High School in Walla Walla, Washington. Many students at Lincoln High School have a history of truancy, behavioral problems, and substance abuse. Based on research about the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), the school radically changes its approach to discipline. The film is an example of how having a caring and supportive adult in a students' life can make a world of a difference.
The event will be held from 5:30-8:30 in the Fridley High School auditorium, 6000 West Moore Lake Drive, Fridley. Enter through Door #16.
Pizza and refreshments will be provided at 5:30 p.m. There is also free childcare provided for ages 2-12. The film will begin at 6 p.m. followed by a panel discussion at 7:45 p.m.
Be advised that the viewing has strong language and subject matter. Children must be at least 13 years old to attend.
The event is held in partnership with Anoka County Human Services Division, Anoka County Children and Family Council, the YMCA, Alexandra House and Fridley Public Schools.
