SCHS Newsletter Jan 13, 2019
Dear BOBCAT Nation,
In an effort to support the Sage Creek community’s awareness of adolescent emotional wellness, the Sage Creek PTSA and Counseling Department are coordinating two showings (academic day & evening) of the Angst documentary
on Wednesday, January 16th, 2019. On Wednesday, January 16th the students will view Angst in their assigned Advisory class. The extended advisory period will include a viewing of the film, prepared discussion guide, support materials, and resources for students to share with their families (see bell schedule below).
*The evening showing will occur on January 16th in the Sage Creek Performing Arts Center at 6 pm; after the viewing, there will be a discussion panel with local mental health representatives and the attending audience- we encourage all families to join us for the community showing.
Angst is a 56-minute film and virtual reality experience that explores anxiety, its causes, effects and what we can do about it. The filmmakers’ goal is to have a global conversation and raise awareness around anxiety. Angst features candid interviews with kids and young adults who suffer, or have suffered, from anxiety and what they’ve learned about it. The film includes discussions with mental health experts about the causes of anxiety and its sociological effects, as well as help, resources, and tools.
We are excited to help raise awareness around anxiety and further supporting all of our students as members of the Bobcat Nation. Thank you for your support in this endeavour.
Assistant Principal, Sage Creek High School
