Winter Festival

Join us for our 5th annual tree lighting as we celebrate and honor our community, life, and loved ones.

As with the four previous tree lightings, this event will be a potluck feast, so please bring a potluck dish to share with your friends and neighbors. You can drop off your dish in the community center, and then proceed outside, where we’ll light the tree shortly after 6.

The community is encouraged to bring a candle to light and place under the tree in remembrance of a loved one or to honor someone that has had a significant impact on his or her life.

After the tree lighting and remembrance ceremony, we’ll return to the potluck feast and play some fun family games. Everyone is invited to bring their favorite game. PEAK will also have several board games on hand.

And don’t forget we’ll be drawing the winner of the quilt, handmade by Katie Vesel! Raffle tickets are available for purchase now at Alberton Feed & Supply.

We hope to provide some music and other surprises for the gathering this year. We look forward to seeing you there!

Book Bingo

Where: Alberton School Cafeteria

We had such a great selection of books at the last book bingo, with many left over and new books coming in regularly, we’re holding another event. Let’s get reading!

Come on down at 1PM to help us out setting up.

Book preview will be at 3PM games start at 3:30PM.

This will be a great chance to stock up on your winter reading or pick out gifts for all the other book lovers in your life. You’ll get loads of books for one low entry fee of $5/per family, $2/adult, or $1/child. Seriously, everyone goes home a winner!

Book bingo works just like regular bingo, but you win books instead of money. And because our goal is to encourage reading among all ages, people who share a similarity with the bingo winner—same table, color of shirt, age range, grade, etc.—get to choose a book along with the winner.

Outdoor Movie

Outdoor Movie

Weather Dependent

Where: Outside, east end of Community Center.

Have you ever seen the movie Little Shop of Horrors? No, not
the one with Rick Moranis as Seymour Krelboyne; the one with Jack Nicholson as Wilbur Force, the man who loves the dentist too much.

If you haven’t had the chance to watch a young Jack Nicholson in this campy 1960 movie, here’s your opportunity, free of charge in the great outdoors!

This movie is rated PG 13, so parents will need to ponder whether to let their kids watch it.

This event is weather dependent; if it’s raining, we’ll cancel it. If it’s just cold, bring extra blankets and parkas.

Popcorn and other goodies will be available for purchase.

Can you believe it’s been 20 years since the first publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone? To celebrate this anniversary, PEAK is hosting a quidditch match, led by Coach Shane Rooney.

No prior knowledge of quidditch is necessary to play. Coach Shane will go
over all the rules when you get there.
What you will need to do is to preregister yourself (if you want us to place you on a team) or a coed team of at least seven people (1 seeker, 3 chasers, 2 beaters,
and 1 keeper). You can preregister by contacting us through our Facebook
page
, via phone
(406-848-4252), or through our website (www.thepeakfoundation.org) by 5 PM on October 2. Include your name, age (just say “over 18” if that applies), and contact info, and we’ll get back to you to complete the registration.

For a sneak peak of what to expect, check out the video from our first quidditch match in 2014 on our Facebook event page

We’ll play rain or shine! If it’s cold, you can warm up with a bowl of hot chili served by a PEAK member.

The Adverse Childhood Experiences Study Training

Registration form at bottom of this page.

• DID YOU KNOW that childhood adversity often leads to toxic stress in a child’s brain? 
• DID YOU KNOW that toxic stress can actually disrupt the development of a child’s brain architecture? 
• DID YOU KNOW that toxic stress can block a child’s ability to communicate? 

The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study is the most advanced
research of all time linking childhood adversity to many types of negative health
and social outcomes in adulthood. Believe it or not, this is the first scientific
research providing hard data to these linkages. 

Is it any wonder some of our children and youth are struggling in their families, among their peers, in school, and in society in general? 

HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
The ACE Study presentation will focus on these themes:
1. Understand the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Study background, research findings, and implications.
2. How ACEs impact brain development and function as an adaptive response to environmental circumstances (why a child/youth acts the way they do).
3. Community Core Protective Systems Capacity? 
What is it, and how can the development of this help avoid ACEs in children & youth?
4. Understand the impact ACEs have had on your own lives (directly or indirectly) and your view of the world and others.
5. Begin thinking of ways to help children & youth, and help support each other.
Elevating the wellbeing and future of Montana’s children. 

When: Friday,November4th
Where: Alberton School
Time:9am-1pm-ACE Presentation
A special screening of Jamie Redford’s award winning documentary Paper Tigers will be shown following the ACE Presentation.

Paper Tigers captures the pain, the danger, the beauty and the hopes of struggling teens
- and the teachers armed with new science and fresh approaches that are changing lives for the better. 

1:30pm-3:30pm-Paper Tigers Screening(Discussion to follow) 

Lunch will be provided! 
Childcare available
