Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, bringing awareness to pediatric cancer, which remains the leading cause of death by disease for children under the age of 14.
Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is a time when we celebrate advances in childhood cancer treatment and survivorship care, remember the children we’ve lost, and engage new advocates to join in our mission of achieving a day when every child with cancer can live a long and healthy life. Show your support by wearing gold.

National Suicide Prevention Month
#BeThe1To is the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline’s message for National Suicide Prevention Month and beyond, which helps spread the word about actions we can all take to prevent suicide. The Lifeline network and its partners are working to change the conversation from suicide to suicide prevention and actions that can promote healing, help and give hope.
The national Suicide Prevention/Crisis line has changed! It is now three easy numbers of 988 where you can call or text to receive help.
How to "be the one to be" check https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/promote-national-suicide-prevention-month/
Come in for a cup of coffee and connect with other members of the community in an embracing environment. Or come in alone and enjoy the calm atmosphere!
Parent Partner and Social Workers will be on site to help with questions, navigate resources, and build partnership.

In order to have those hours be recorded in Skyward, you still need to print out a transcript from PdEnroller and submit it with the appropriate signed documentation by you and your supervisor. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Rachel Lawson at 3137 or via email.
