Stress and students – how can we help our students to navigate and thrive?


Join us on Wednesday, November 30 at 6:30 pm for Understanding Stress and Anxiety:  The Impact on Behavior and Learning, presented by Dr. Steven Michelson, Ph.D..  Research shows that an appropriate amount of stress is necessary for peak performance, but too little/too much can lead to shutting down or underperformance.  Come and learn more about productive vs. toxic stress and anxiety and how we can support students to develop resilience and the skills needed for optimal performance and healthy responses to stress.

The presentation will take place in the Laverack Room at Applewild School, 120 Prospect Street, Fitchburg, MA.  All are welcome, and please feel free to bring guests!  An RSVP is appreciated but not required.  For more information, please contact Christie Stover at
