Controversial Show 13 Reasons Why starts May 18, 2018 – Why you might want to talk to your kids.

Heads Up to Parents:
Netflix released the second season of 13 Reasons Why on May 18, 2018. Season one controversially and graphically covered the topics of suicide, bullying, violence, and more.
While it helped begin much needed conversations on these important topics, we support including mental health, parental and adult guidance, as well as how to seek help in these discussions for more positive responses. For this reason, we are sharing resources from the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry and other resources in hopes of helping children and families at the time of season two’s release.

Please review this information and share it with those in your networks of parents.

Field Day June 7th

Save the date for Field Day!  The date is June 7th with a raindate of June 8th.  Attached is the link for you to sign up for volunteering.  We need a ton of volunteers to make this happen so we hope you can join us.  We are asking on the sign up genius for your month/day of your birthday so we can preregister you for the event.  All volunteers must be registered in order to attend.  Preregistering will allow you to receive your badge outside the day of the event instead of coming in to be scanned.
