SBIRT screening: Week #1
The state-mandated Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) program began this week in our Freshmen Academy class. More than 38 percent of our freshmen were screened. All screenings will be conducted confidentially by our school nurse or guidance counselors in private one-on-one sessions.
This year Joseph Case High School is screening grade 9 students privately about the use of alcohol, marijuana and other substances. The goal of this program is to let the students know that we are available to reinforce healthy decisions and to assist them in obtaining support if needed for substance use related problems.
SBIRT screenings are scheduled through the end of February.

And finally: Term III starts Monday, January 22
It's also a great time to look at successes of the first semester and plan to build on them, while iterating in other areas that might need a tweak or some additional growth.
Commit to a growth mindset that hard work will reap many benefits. You will have a better second half of the school year no matter what your entry point is when you embrace this.
