Parent Assembly: Building Resiliency in our Kids

Just as physical fitness is important to our health, mental fitness aids in our overall well-being.

Resiliency, one of the main components of positive mental health, allows students to stand in the face of challenges and persevere through times of disappointment or frustration.

Brooks Gibbs is a well-known expert on the topic of resiliency, and we are excited to welcome him to American Academy mid-April! His upbeat presentation is fun and relatable, as he delivers a message that empowers students to feel in control of their responses to feelings. With special attention paid to the issue of social conflict, Brooks Gibbs provides practical techniques that instill confidence in students and their ability to bounce back.

Our students will be hearing Mr. Gibbs speak during school day assemblies, so you can decide if you would like to bring them for this evening assembly. Let us know you're coming with an RSVP so we can have enough seating.
