From Mrs. Lindsay's Counseling Corner
In August, we had a Teen Suicide Workshop for parents and we had Teen Lifeline come to the school and speak with our students. Our 6th - 8th graders received a Teen Lifeline sticker on their planner, a resource they can use to know they are not alone. If you need resources and more information please feel free to visit Teen Lifeline.
