Homework. College essays. Social media. Sports. Volunteering. Part-time jobs. Friends. Teens’ lives are jam-packed from the minute they wake up until the time they finally sleep — just keeping up is a daily struggle for many.
Partially filmed at Menlo-Atherton High School, Breaking Points explores the stress and pressures our teens face every day, as well as the unhealthy ways that some of them cope. This powerful film is part of The Partnership for Drug-Free Kids’ Medicine Abuse Project, a national action campaign with the goal of preventing and addressing prescription medicine abuse among teens.
The film, which will be introduced by M-A Principal Simone Rick-Kennel and former principal Matthew Zito, will screen on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 7:00 pm in the M-A Performing Arts Center.
M-A Parent Education Series events are free, sponsored by the M-A PTA, the Sequoia Healthcare District, and the Sequoia Union High School District. Advance registration is appreciated. Simultaneous Spanish interpretation will be available.
