Parent Showing of “Angst” Tonight

Join us this evening at 6:30 in the Performing Arts Center for a showing of the documentary film “Angst” to PA parents and friends. This 56-minute documentary film, seen and discussed by our Upper School faculty, is about anxiety disorders and ways to address them.  While disorders are different from the ordinary student experience of anxiety, much can be learned by all. A panel discussion follows tonight’s showing.  Students in grades 9-12 will view the film in school on Wednesday.  Register here for tonight’s event, or simply come.  Feel free to contact Mrs. McCarthy at kesney.mccarthy@providenceacademy.org  with any questions before or after.
