A fantastic afternoon with Dr. Gabor Mate We had a full house at the school on Sunday of current and alumni parents, students, mental health workers, and educators gathering to spend an afternoon with Dr. Gabor Mate.  It was an inspirational, fascinating, personal, and educational seminar that each of the guests could relate to and learn from.  He spoke about ADD and addiction in the context of the brain, and compassion, and life experience.  He explained what we see every day with our students - that with the right opporunities and environment, change and growth is really possible. This was a great event to launch what will continue as a series of special guest speakers offering personal and professional development.  Thanks Dr. Mate, and to everyone who joined us!
