Greetings Families and Guardians,
September is National Suicide Awareness Month. Suicide attempt has been growing every year, but to counter that, students in the United States have been increasingly willing and wanting to find someone to share their challenges with and get help. Suicide can be a very difficult subject to discuss, as well as helping someone going through ideas of stress or depression, just to name a few.
In the following week, the counseling department will have completed going into classes this month to discuss the topic of suicide in the hopes of bringing awareness and understanding to our students and to help our community and family grow to love and protect each other. Discussion of the topics were designed to be age-appropriate and any further questions that the students have can be directed to the counseling team. We are a school of prevention and providing tools to help our students grow and understand the various challenges that life can bring to them. If you have any further questions, please contact your child's grade level counselor.
Dr. Kyle J. Atabay
