Mr. O and our seniors had a great trip to NAU this week and we are looking forward to visiting ASU at the end of November. Our group support sessions are a great resource for students and they are learning some excellent coping skills. We continue to focus on anxiety but supports for anger management, grief, and depression are being built and will be starting after Christmas. The East Valley Institute for Technology (EVIT) is on campus this week to meet with the Sophomore class about options for attending EVIT, what the requirements are, and how to apply.
