Parents, please join us on Wednesday, December 11th from 6:30p to 8:30p at Sanford High School for a presentation called Risky Business. This event is for parents of kids in grades 6-12. During this event, Melissa Fernald-- a duly licensed social worker and master licensed drug and alcohol counselor-- invites adults to learn about warning signs that an adolescent may be experiencing mental health, social, or emotional issues. Fernald stages a mock teenage bedroom to include various warning signs of mental illness, bullying, and other concerns. This interactive event is intended to increase community awareness, promote early detection of mental illness, provide tools and resources, and demonstrate communication techniques for engaging effectively with adolescents.
Bus 14 was in a minor traffic accident during the secondary run this afternoon. The bus will be running about 20 minutes late as a result.
Hi, This is just a reminder that Student Led Conferences are this Wednesday afternoon and evening. You are invited to come to the 8th grade wing at SHS between 3:30 and 7:30 so, that your child can take you to each class and show you the work that is being completed. Teachers will not be available for 6:00-6:30 as that is when they are having their dinner break. We hope to see you this Wednesday. Respectfully, Mr. Potter Administrator with the 8th grade
