FOND DU LAC, Wis

. – Marian University, in collaboration with Comprehensive Services Integration (CSI), the Fond du Lac Boys and Girls Club, and the Fond du Lac School District, will be sponsoring a screening of
Paper Tigers

 on Monday, November 16 from 6:30 – 9 p.m. at Goodrich Little Theater.

Paper Tigers

explores the impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACES) and toxic stress on struggling teens. The film follows a year in the life of Lincoln High School, an alternative school in Walla Walla, Wash. After radically changing its approach to disciplining students, Lincoln High School saw a dramatic turnaround in everything from the number of fights to test scores to graduation rates. The school has become a promising model of how to break the cycles of poverty, violence and disease that affect families through the practice of trauma-informed educational strategies.

Following the screening, a panel of local experts and community members will discuss healing trauma in the school setting. For more information about the film and to view the trailer, visit
