Kohler High School is excited to bring nationally recognized pediatrician and author Dr. Kenneth Ginsburg to our students, faculty, and community on April 9. Dr Ginsburg will share his expertise on how parents and school staff can support building life-long resilience in adolescence. His key messages encompass raising children to become happy and healthy adults, the 7 C’s of parenting, and balancing success and happiness.

Dr. Ginsburg was selected as the key presenter based on his book Raising Kids to Thrive, professional skill set in promoting resilience through presentations to schools and community, as well as his role on the Board for Challenge Success.

We know the strong bonds between school, family, and community shapes the health, well-being, and success of each child at Kohler Schools. We invite parents and the community to join in the events to build strong social emotional learning for our school children.
