The Amador Valley High School (AVHS) PTSA Wellness Committee and the AVHS Challenge Success Team are hosting a Race to Nowhere screening at Valley Community Church (4455 Del Valle Parkway, Pleasanton) on November 15th at 6:30pm. This event is open to the community.
"Race to Nowhere" is an award-winning documentary that highlights the unintended consequences of our pressure-cooker culture and education system. An eye-opening call to action, the film challenges our current assumptions about how to best prepare young people for the future (http://www.racetonowhere.com/).
Immediately following the screening of the Race to Nowhere documentary, there will be a student-moderated interactive discussion of the issues raised in this documentary. Learn, ask and hear from our panelists:
- Amador Valley High School's Administrators
- Amador Valley High School’s Challenge Success Students
- Members of the Pleasanton Unified School District
- City of Pleasanton Student & Family Resources
- Local Professional Resources
- And other representatives from organizations that are connected to our students
Invite friends, family members, colleagues, and individuals that would benefit from this eye-opening experience! Even if you have seen the movie the first time, remember this time you will have the chance to ask any of our invited guests questions regarding the movie.
