WARREN / CCA RECOGNIZE RED RIBBON WEEK, 2021

October 25 - 29, 2021 is RED RIBBON WEEK.

Students & Staff! We'd love to see everyone participate in the Red Ribbon Week Drug-Free Theme Dress:

Tips for Managing Stress

For many students, the return to In Person schooling after a year and a half of distance learning, quarantining, and surviving a pandemic can bring about uncomfortable stressors. It's important for teens to develop healthy ways to cope with stress while they're young, so when life hits those bumps in the road in the future, they know what to do.

School Counselors can help students develop helpful techniques for managing stress that occur during high school. If your teen is feeling overwhelmed with stress, here are a few tips to try out.
