October 1 - Bring a Plain T-Shirt to School - 2nd Notice
Don't feel like you have to go out and buy something new! If your chid has a plain t-shirt hanging in his/her closet (that you don't mind donating), just send it in! If you have a bunch of extra plain t-shirts around, send those in, too! Students will be decorating their "Be Kind" t-shirt and bringing it home over the weekend so that it can be worn on Monday, October 7th for our "Be Kind Dress Down Day".
If you are unable to provide a plain t-shirt for your child, just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are willing to donate extra t-shirts, please send those in by October 1st as well! Thank you for helping us with this project!
Reminder: Bring in a plain t-shirt (any color, no writing or designs) by October 1st.
S.O.S. - Middle School Suicide Prevention Program - 2nd Notice

To help understand that depression is a treatable illness.
To explain that suicide is a preventable tragedy that often occurs as a result of untreated depression.
To provide students, parents, and faculty training in how to identify serious depression and potential suicide risk.
To impress upon students that they can help themselves by taking the step of talking to a trusted adult about their concerns.
To partner together in understanding, identifying, and helping those dealing with depression and to provide resources to assist families with this very serious issue.
On Wednesday, November 13 at 5:30pm, St. Patrick School will host a parent information night where you will learn more about this program. Parents will have a chance to understand how the program works, gain access to a parent portal where you can find a lot of great information, and ask any questions you may have.
