Mental Health Event with Motivational Speaker Joe Beckman
Joe Beckman (motivational speaker) will be delivering an uplifting and relevant presentation to the student bodies at Brainerd HS (AM) and Pequot Lakes (PM) on Monday, February 11th. Over the course of the last 15 years, Joe has impacted the lives of students in more than 150 schools delivering a message of hope, love of self and resiliency. One of Joe’s central messages “3 phrases” can be viewed at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2z8CBMGujbg&t=3s This is a message that adds value to our existing homeroom curriculums related to character, health and wellness efforts in Health classes, Youth Frontiers events and other related building-wide efforts centered on the development of the “whole child”.
In addition, we will be broadening the impact of this message by inviting the general public in to listen to Joe as a part of our Winter Conference Night for our 5-12 campus. It will be an evening of Parent Professional Development linking our ISD 181 and ISD 186 parents, along with reaching out to our faith community, businesses and anyone else who wants to hear an empowering and uplifting message of hope.
This is a joint effort between the Pequot Lakes and Brainerd public schools with a central focus on empowering our children and dissolving the stigma associated with mental health and mental illness in the Lakes Area.
