September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness month. #Bethe1To Ask #NationalSuicidePreventionAwarenessMonth "Every day in the United States friends, family and co-workers struggle with emotional pain. And, for some, it's too difficult to talk about the pain, thoughts of suicide and the need for help. Though the warning signs can be subtle, they are there. By recognizing these signs, knowing how to start a conversation and where to turn for help, you have the power to make a difference and instill hope– the power to save a life."

ACE provides support to students with academic needs while engaging them in enrichment activities in various fields such as art, cooking, music, and literature. In order to be considered for the program, you must fill out an ACE Interest form linked below. Filling out an interest form does not enroll a child in the program.

Principals emailed parents a form yesterday that asks if your child will be attending school face to face on September 14th, September 21st (first day of 2nd 6 weeks), or if they will continue with remote learning. We need every parent to respond so that the campuses can plan accordingly. If you did not receive the email, please call your child's campus.

With the challenges COVID-19 has created, now more than ever, it is important to not only teach students skills for academic success but, just as importantly, we need to attend to their social and emotional needs during these uncertain times. This year’s guidance lessons, taught by the counselor, will use the evidence based program Second Step to teach critical academic and social skills such as: how to focus their attention, listen carefully, use self-talk to stay on task, identify and understand their own and other’s feelings, show compassion, calm down when experiencing strong feelings like anger or anxiety, and steps for positively solving problems with others. Learning these skills takes practice, and families are encouraged to be engaged in the learning process through home link activities that will be shared in the counselor’s Google classroom. We look forward to an exciting year as we all learn new skills on this journey!
