Reframing Negative Thinking in our Teens
Signs of Suicide - Teen Suicide Prevention Training
This informative night is important in understanding how the S.O.S program works and what you and your child can expect. Parents will receive a lot of great information on recognizing signs of depression and preventing suicide. We hope all middle school parents plan to attend this informative evening.
You can check out the S.O.S Parent Portal at the link below.
During conferences, we were spoiled with treats and lunch from a couple of angels and let me tell you how much that helps get the teachers through those long days!
Another angel provided us with a new projector for our staff lounge, which is something we've needed desperately! Not only that, it was installed and ready to go for a training we had on Thursday!
Speaking of staff lounge...have you checked it out lately? Completely painted and updated with new furniture and a cozy place for staff to take a minute to recharge. Plus an adorable way to note our staff birthdays. All of these wonderful improvements were gifted to us by another group of angels!
To top it all off, another angel gave a very generous donation to the St. Patrick teacher's wish list fund and another to our general fund. I can't tell you how blown away I was by this generosity.
It's such a good reminder to me how good we have it at St. Patrick School and how grateful we all are for our angels who spoil us every single day!
